“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
It doesn’t matter how naturally intelligent you are, how many degrees you may have or what alma mater you sing along with on game day – if you are not looking to God for true wisdom [everyday] then you are in fact going the wrong way. Trusting God’s will and God’s way for your life is the smartest thing you will ever do.
He didn’t promise it would be easy, but He did promise He would be with you. From the smallest decisions to the biggest, He wants to be a part of every single detail.
We can’t see the big picture, but He can. We don’t know our future, but He does. Staying in God’s word and daily communicating with Him through prayer and worship will help ensure that you do recognize His guidance and plans for your life.
Don’t place your trust in a website, a self-help book, or even your best friend for instruction. Look to God. Fact check it all. Pray for discernment.
One thing I’ve learned by diving into God’s word is that His timing is so amazingly cool. He truly works things out in a way that our small human minds could never fathom. His paths aren’t always paved with perfectly smooth concrete – in fact sometimes they are so uneven that we stumble and fall over and over again – but you can know without a doubt that His path will take you exactly where you need to be.
