Philippians Proverbs 3:5, 6 is a favorite bible memory verse, but how many know the story behind the verse?
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And do not lean in your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will shall direct your paths”.
King Solomon wrote these words of wisdom in Proverbs to God’s people. This particular section of the story is written to young people.
Solomon wrote to the young people, among other things, about following God’s commands, being merciful and truthful, not thinking they are wiser than you are, and realizing all their possessions are the Lord’s.
In Proverbs 3:5, 6 Solomon encourages young people specifically to trust in the Lord’s plan and not their own. No matter what, believe and follow after God and He will make things turn out right in the end.
Now you know the story behind Proverbs 3:5, 6.
