Proverbs 3:5-6: “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”
A lot of times when we face a crossroads, we start to overthink things. Which way is best for me? Which is the most familiar? What will the consequences be if I choose wrong? It’s so easy to get caught up in our thoughts. Fortunately, we have God to shake us out of that and set us on the right path. These two verses in Proverbs tell us that it’s not our own understanding that will carry us forward, by God. If we listen to God and follow His guidance, He will never let us down and will never lead us down the wrong path. As school starts to get busier and our lives more difficult, we need to rely on God to take us in the right direction.
God, please remind me to always listen to you and seek your guidance when I’m facing difficult choices. Even if the right path isn’t easy, help me to follow it to You. Each and every day, help me remember that your wisdom far exceeds my own.
