Trust, trust, trust

Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.
Proverbs 28:26

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Incline your ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply your heart to my knowledge, for it will be pleasant if you keep them within you, if all of them are ready on your lips. That your trust may be in the LORD, I have made them known to you today, even to you.
Proverbs 22:17-19



  1. Wisdom and trust.. matters of the heart for sure.

  2. Yes. For the biblical tradition though, the heart stands for the will as do our mind.

  3. I understand. It is why I usually use innermost being (ala John 7:38) and outermost being (i.e. the flesh).

  4. "He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, 'From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'" -John 7:38 NASV

  5. Ah! Ok, got it.
    I was reading my ESV ... "out of his heart will flow rivers of living water".
