February 13th, Trust God
~ Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. ~
Have you discovered how different your values are from God’s? We’ll work our fingers to the bone for money, but we find it hard to crack a book, listen to a message, or set aside thirty minutes for His wisdom. We work hard for comfort, yet God is more interested in our character. Education is not wisdom! You can memorize facts, pass tests, earn degrees, and still not have wisdom. So what is the secret… “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5) He didn’t say don’t use it, He said don’t lean on your own understanding.
After you’ve researched, consulted with others, and done everything you know how, come back to one unchanging fact; Jesus Christ is your source, your strength, and your guide. He is our final answer. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path. (Proverbs 3:6)
