LEAN NOT ON YOUR UNDERSTANDING



   

Prov 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
6 Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.

Sharon’s fiancĂ© jilted her during their final year in the university and this really broke her because apart from the fact that they were both committed Christian students, he depended on her throughout for his upkeep as he was from a poor Nigerian family. Months passed and Sharon didn’t deal with her bitterness and anger, she was still angry with God and refused to hear her mother’s advice to acknowledge God in all her ways especially now that she was about to marry a wealthy man who’s Christian conviction was shaky. She felt that when she trusted  God concerning her first relationship, it ended badly, why should she trust Him now…
Her marriage with the wealthy man ended very badly, she lost almost everything; he molested her when she was pregnant; killing the baby and ruining her womb.
I do not believe there is any right thinking Christian who would not want God to direct his way and establish them, but sometimes discouragements make some Christians ignore seeking God’s face concerning crucial issues because like Sharon, they think God has failed them before.
I want you to remember that as long as you love God and you have a relationship with Him, all things are going to work together for your Good. It may not seem so right now, but take God’s word for who He is and see Him bring out glory from the story.
Go into today with a renewed zeal to trust in the Lord and let Him in on every detail of your plans.
Prayer: Dear heavenly father, I thank you for your word and your lordship over my life. I pray you give me the strength to trust you even in difficult situations, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
