Proverbs 3:5: Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Meditation: Have you ever said, “How can this be?” Perhaps you have tried to do right and it seems like things are not working out. Maybe the more you try to live for God the more difficult things become. Well, you are not alone. However, we must remember to trust the LORD with all our hearts; meaning our minds are stayed on Christ, our emotions controlled by the Holy Spirit, and our wills committed to following the Father even when we do not understand. When we lean unto our own understanding our minds become troubled, our emotions can fly out of control, and temptations to follow our flesh increase. We must commit to trusting God in all of the issues of life.
Prayer: Lord, I pray for all those that are going through testing right now. I pray that they will trust you and not their own understanding. Amen.
