The adult Sunday School classes at my church are currently studying the book of Proverbs. There is SO much wisdom to be found there.
I absolutely love Proverbs 3:5-6, but this study has caused me to dig a little bit deeper into these verses.
If I am not trusting the Lord with ALL of my heart, then am I really trusting in Him? Why am I holding back that little bit of my heart? Am I trying to lean on my own understanding?
One thing I've found over the years is that leaning on my own understanding, my own thoughts, or the thoughts of others, never, ever, ever works out well. I might think I have it all under control, but that's usually when the ground moves under my feet and I find myself knocked to the floor.
Another thing I'm learning from these verses is that God promises to direct my path IF I acknowledge Him and trust in Him. He cannot lead me if I am not on the path that He has chosen for me. Again, when I hop off of God's path and onto the path of MY way and follow my selfishness and arrogance, it never ends well.
So I ask you, are you trusting God with all of your heart?
