Psalm 111:10

“To obey the Lord is the fundamental

principle for wise living;
all who carry out his precepts

acquire good moral insight…”

In Proverbs 3:5-6 the Word admonishes us to trust in Him and lean NOT on our own understanding.  
Proverbs 3:5-6 Amplified Bible
“Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord
with all your heart
And do not rely on your own insight
or understanding.
In all your ways know and acknowledge
and recognize Him,
And He will make your paths straight and smooth
[removing obstacles that block your way].”
Many times we can find ourselves struggling in our faith because of the voices in our minds, and the knowledge we have attained.   Sometimes knowledge will cause us to reason away God’s awesome plans for us.   You see… we can easily be deceived by the so called comfort that comes when we feel we have every thing figured out. 
We live in an age where knowledge and information are so easy to get our hands on.  Any information that we need is at our finger tips as we google in our questions and problems on our phones or computers.  Quite honestly, I have found the more I know about things sometimes it can actually hinder my faith.  The tendency to trust in what man says above what God says about a particular thing can keep us from totally trusting in the God of all provision.

 Leaning on God for all that we need is so vital.  Sometimes we want so badly to understand things that we are walking through, and there are times we put too much focus on figuring things out.  I have found that simply obeying Him and knowing that I can trust Him to be in charge of my life keeps it simple enough for me.  We must remind ourselves that our peace cannot come from merely understanding something inside and out.    It is in the realm of faith that much is happening by the hand of our Lord and it is beyond our understanding.


As we entrust our lives into the loving care of the Lord, HE WILL  in His timing give us understanding and direction, and we will learn and grow from situations that we walk through.   We just need to trust and obey.  Praise God for He is good all the time…ALL THE TIME God IS good!
