Trust in God Not Yourself

pray

We are to trust in God for everything. Not in our own hearts or thoughts.

Pray about every decision.

Proverbs 3:5-6 ” 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.”

If we are always mindful to pray and seek God’s will in everything, then He will lead us in the right path and we will not make mistakes.

Why can’t we just trust in our own heart?

We are never to lean on our own understanding, and think that we can handle things ourselves, because our own hearts can deceive us and lead us the wrong way.

Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

Our own understanding can lead us to death.

Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

The Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge.

Psalms 111:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.”

Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”

God wants us to ask Him for wisdom in everything. Nothing is too small or too big.

James 1:5-8 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

God’s wisdom will always lead you right.

James 3:17 “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.”

Trust in God for all your answers and you will live a life without regrets.
