A Thought For The Day

October 31, 2014

Proverbs 3:5,6 “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.”

It is so easy to love that scripture! Much harder to walk it out. I think as human beings we like to be in control of our lives. Masters of our own little world. Sometimes we don’t realize how often we try to manipulate circumstances into the outcome we desire. This scripture admonishes us to do the opposite.

1. Pray about things, knowing that God has your best interest at heart.
2. Don’t rely solely on what you see and limit yourself to your own finite understanding.
3. Acknowledge God in everything asking for His will to be done in all situations.
4. Look for His guidance and expect Him to show you.

It is a lifelong task to try to walk in this. As I was praying the Lord’s prayer one day… and got to the part that says: “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” I wondered why I would ever pray any other way? Isn’t His way and His will always the best? Old habits are hard to break. I’m still in process and pray to keep growing in the act of surrendering to Him. Trusting in Him. I think we can never imagine the good He has for us in His will. So I’ll end with this scripture….

1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
 Nor have entered into the heart of man
,
the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Hope you all have an awesome day! 🙂 You are greatly loved by Him!
