Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

This is my favorite because of the promise of direction, meaning I don't have to rely on my own flawed intellect, or human intellect in general.

Ecclesiastes 1:10-11 "Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after."

This is a reminder that all things must pass, and that where we are, others have been. Something about our actions and efforts being worthless and unremembered appeals to me, probably because most of our actions are sin, and I would like them not to be remembered. Thanks to Christ, they won't be.
