A young girl amazingly recites memorized Bible verse in National Bible Bee, and it’s a verse highlighting a lesson we all need to keep in mind as believers.
National Bible Bee
The National Bible Bee was founded in 2009 by Shelby Kennedy Foundation. It’s a Bible contest created “to engage young people in the memorization and study” of the Scripture. Also, NBB’s Facebook page wrote on its cover page, “To know God’s Word and make Him known.”
And in one episode of the contest that went viral on Facebook with over two million views, a young girl recited Proverbs 3:5-7. She contended against other young believers, Brianna, Zachary, and Rachel.
Ann amazingly recited the Scripture. However, she forgot a few words in verse five. Overall, it should have been, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes. Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”
Now, following her response, the host requested her insights about the Word. Hence, Ann stressed it gives encouragement “when you just don’t know what to do. And you feel like you’re up to your neck and everything.”
Further, the young girl explained, “And just things are coming at you left and right and you are thinking ‘How am I going to do this all?’ But then you remember that it’s not up to you to decide what you should be doing. It’s not up to decide what’s right. You don’t have to go through it yourself. You have something to lean, you have support.”
Trust God And Not Your Own Understanding
Afterward, the host also shared his understanding of the Scripture. And how we should heed the advice of the wisest man ever lived on earth.
“Solomon is telling us don’t put all your weight on your own way of understanding things,” he said. “Because God knows things that you don’t know and trust is a matter of focus. The more we trust on the value of what we have and where we’re putting our weight, the less we’ll get what God has for us. If we simply take our weight off of our own understanding and put off all of our weight on Him.”
Another host added, “We need to see God and say ‘Lord when I’m in that fire, when I’m in the heat of it, help at that moment. To turn my heart and gaze towards You.'”
