In everything you do ...
Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. -Proverbs 3:5-6
It is so easy to compartmentalize our lives into secular and sacred activities. Even in church we sometimes hear how certain things are holy and other things are not. It is a lie perpetrated to exalt religious vocation over others. Yet here Solomon tells us that trusting God is all about listening for His voice in "everything" and "everywhere". Trusting God was never mean to be something that only the religious leaders did in religious acts and holy places.
What do you think he meant when he wrote "Listen for God's voice"? Do you think that the wisest man of his time had a hotline to God or a special connection? Or do you think that this voice was something subtler? My view is that we hear God in the same place that we trust God - in our heart. Some think of it as a "gut feeling" ... some as the voice of their conscience. Either way you see it there seems to be a place within us where we can trust God and hear His voice.
Help us to pay attention to your voice within us Lord and trust that you are speaking to us.
