In Proverbs 3:6, God is telling us to submit to him and follow his words. Proverbs, itself, is a collection of biblical wisdom designed to address moral behavior, correct conduct, the purpose of one's life and values. Within this verse from Proverbs, God reminds us of his plan for us. Humans are often subject to doubts and question what their purpose is. The whole purpose of the book is to give solace to the uncertainty of what life can throw at you. Life is never simple.
Looking at everything many people have going including a job, a family, friends, and education, it can be a lot to take on. A person can become very tired from having to juggle all the responsibilities of life. Coming to terms with what exactly you have may not be the easiest thing for you to do. Having many responsibilities can cause a lot of anxiety. Listening to God's words and everything he is telling you might be some way for you to gain solace.
When God tells you everything is going to be alright, this can be the key for you to come to terms with what is going on. God is aware of everything around you and what is going on. He is not fearful of anything. He's the ultimate psychologist or therapist. For example, he will understand if you have a drug addiction and need help. He can counsel you through all these challenges and responsibilities. He may be the best person to confide in when dealing with emotional unrest.
God is not afraid of anything. He is an all powerful being who is confident in everything he is does. He knows human nature and how we might sin. We make mistakes but knowing that he has been through the same events as we have been can give comfort to our troubles. God, Himself, sent his only son, in order to be able to experience the pains and temptations of being human. God lived the human experience through his son.
God can help you to see that everything is going to be okay. If many people fall victim to drug addiction, God will forgive them for what happened. That is what trusting him is all about. Maintaining confidence in God will pay dividends for you as your life continues on.
