We are instructed to “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes:fear the Lord, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones”. (Proverbs 3:5-8).
This is sound advice that if we heed it, our life will be the better for it. We are the children of God when we have faith in Christ Jesus, and this makes us heirs to the kingdom of God. There is hope in Christ when there is no hoe seen in the world!(Galatians 3:22-29). 22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
