Lean NOT on your own understanding

DAILY VERSE

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

Proverbs 3:5


DEVOTION

Great advice, but isn’t that what we all do? We lean on our own understanding every day. When we’re faced with trials or times of waiting, don’t we all fall off of our faith wagon and wonder if God is listening? God has stated that His “thoughts are far beyond our own”, yet we so easily fall into the trap of putting God in a human box. Through our faith in Jesus Christ, we have an intercessor¬†and a constant helper (the Holy Spirit). God will not leave or forsake us. We simply need to stop leaning on our own understanding.
