Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,and he shall direct thy paths.
We are admonished here my Solmon in this passage of scripture. We know everything that happens in our life happens for a purpose. This is a very famous passage of scripture and may can quote it but lets look at in detail.
I. Trust with all thine heart.
This is easy to say but hard to do from a fleshy person. I know some think they are real spiritual but in my life I have a hard time doing this.
We trust in in Saving our Soul. We nail that down but something about trusting him in everyday life is different. It is hard to Trust with every bit of my heart I believe God can do anything in others lives but sometimes have a hard time believing he can do it for me.
II. Lean not unto thine own understanding.
This is where alot of us live our lives leaning to our own understanding. We try to help God help in our lives and God says no. He will not share his glory with any one. How many times do we make an own understanding decision. We make decisions many times without even consulting our Lord and Savior. However for us to a spirit-filled christian we have to give God all our heart.
III. In all thy ways acknowledge him.
SOmetimes we live our lives without ever acknowledging the Lord. SOmetimes we get so busy and forget to bring Jesus into to the equastion. The Word again is that little word all, just like trust with all thine heart, here it is in all thy ways. We must trust him in all our ways. and we must acknowledge him in all our ways. All means all.
IV. and he shall direct thy path.
We have a part to do before God fulfills his promise. If we don't do our part God is not obligated to his. We must put everything in the Lords hands in our life. He wants to do so much for us in our lives but we don't allow him because we are not obedient to this passage of scripture sometimes we go through things because we don't do what this passage says.
May the Lord help us to be obedient in our part and we know GOd will do his part
