Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.
In this proverb God tells us not to rely on human understanding. He knows that human understanding is flawed, inaccurate and limited. Simply because we cannot read minds or discern the thoughts of another personís heart. We cannot see the future or know for certain what will happen next. Therefore itís useless to trust our own understanding. God, on the other hand, is dependable, trustworthy and faithful. We can rely on Him for He understands every situation we face. He sees a bigger picture and knows where every piece fits into the puzzle of life. We are to trust Him completely and when we do, we will learn how trustworthy He is!
He is God, the Creator of all things seen and unseen. He knows the number of hairs on your head and He knows your name. Will you trust Him today? Will you acknowledge that He is in control of your life and ask Him to lead you in the path He has set for you? We need to do this daily not because He is hard of hearing, but because we so easily forget who He really is. He is big enough to handle our problems, strong enough to fight our battles and wise enough to lead us in the right direction. Surrender and trust Him today.
