“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
Sometimes we don’t understand the plans of the LORD. But we can be sure if we put our heart’s trust in Him we will not fall. If we keep our focus to trust in Him and seek His Word, we will not be turned away. When we seek after His heart, then the desires of our heart will follow. If we commit our way unto the LORD He will bring forth those things within us that we cannot do on our own. If we rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him, then we will see His glory!
Let us not be deceived by our own understanding for it is foolishness with God. He knows our thoughts and He will not spare His discipline if you do not seek after His heart rather than your own. Remember He is a loving father and He wishes that none will perish, but He will not allow us to go our own way without consequences paid. So seek after Him and put aside your own understanding; for He will make clear His leading in His perfect timing.
Prayer: Father, do not let me lean on my own understanding. Correct me when I foolishly try to find a way that is not inspired by you. LORD, as we come to your Word this day, teach us more about you. Cause our hearts to hunger after you and develop in us a trust that is blinded to all that would turn us away. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
