Matthew 6:33
Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

I love the simplicity of these verses, yet oh how difficult it is too trust in the Lord at all times. I want to choose my own way of doing things. I just read a chapter of Charles Stanley's book How to Listen to God, and one thing that stuck out in my head was that God often tells us the opposite of what the human, natural or rational thing is to do. How often I do things my own way instead of waiting on God!
