Proverbs 3:5-6

As we compete, there is a great deal of trust required from all of us.  At times we have to trust our coaches, our teammates, even our own abilities.  The most secure person to place one's trust in is certainly the Lord Jesus.

In Proverbs chapter 3 and verses 5 and 6 it says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”

In competition there are always things that are beyond our control and things that are beyond our understanding.  Rather than leaning on our understanding, this scripture leads us to lean on the understanding of the Lord.  He's the Creator of the universe, He certainly has sufficient understanding for today's competition.

The call is to trust Him with all our hearts.  Let's commit everything to Him and lean wholly upon His understanding and His love for us.  Make your prayer today a whole hearted commitment of everything you are to the Lord Jesus.
