“Nationwide is on your side” Linda Krisko, a Lighthouse Network board member provides our corporate and our personal insurance through Nationwide. I trust her and she has been great when our teen got into her first car accident.
“The Good Hands People” of Allstate ask us to submit ourselves and put our life in their hands for potential serious life issues.
To submit an area of our life to someone else, we really have to trust them, interview them, get other people’s feedback, check their track record, then give them a try.
God is the ultimate insurance company. Some say He sells fire insurance to save us from the fiery furnace of Hell. He also provides protection techniques from “accidents” as well as services to help navigate and restore when an “accident” does occur.
In order to fully submit our lives to God, we have to trust Him from the bottom of our heart. Trust his unconditional love. Trust that His way and instructions really are the best way. Trust that He is able to deliver what He promises. Trust that listening to Him and obeying Him will keep us on track.
How do we build that kind of trust? By getting to know Him better…through prayer…through studying and meditating on the Bible…by being sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit. And by experience…looking back and remembering how He has loved us and helped us in the past. How His way has always proved to be the right way.
How do you make choices? By trying to figure things out on your own? By following your intellect, emotions and reasoning? Today’s scripture cautions not to assume that you know it all.
Today, listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go. Are you submitting to His plan above all else? Is He truly at the center of your life?

Dear Father God, Please forgive me for all the times I’ve attempted to figure things out on my own…instead of relying on You. I do trust You…but help me to trust You when I am in a pinch more. Teach me to tune into Your voice in everything I do and everywhere I go. Help me to always seek Your will, Your plan, above my own desires.. I pray this and all prayers in the name of the One I trust from the bottom of my heart, Jesus Christ; and all God’s children say – AMEN!
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. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil!
