Do you want to know God’s will for your life? On today’s edition of Family Talk, Bob Vernon, a retired assistant chief of the LAPD, points to the well-known passage of Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Using captivating street stories from his time in the police force, Bob outlines the three prerequisites and the promise of the Lord illustrated in those verses.
