1 Corinthians 3:18-23(NIV)
Letting go is the beginning of Faith because we can even begin to have faith without Jesus. You can have faith in other things, like people, money and a great future but you cannot have faith in Jesus with out Jesus.
Hebrews 12:2 (NIV)
2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Verse Reference: Proverbs 3 and Proverbs 23
Lord, I ask you for wisdom and acknowledge you in all things. There have been time when wisdom hasn't been my strength and knowledge wasn't in the heart. After stumbling and seeing myself return to my own folly I realize the errors of my ways. Early in life I sought you and should have continued to hide this verse on my heart,
Proverbs 3:1-2 My son, do not forget my teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,
2 for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity."
