Proverbs 3:5-10 New International Version (NIV)5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
8 This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.
9 Honor the Lord with your wealth,
with the firstfruits of all your crops;
10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
and your vats will brim over with new wine.
Lean not to your own understanding
I have found God faithful over my lifetime. Sure there were times of disappointment and the big wonder of life. What's next and how do I get through this day? I can look back to see God brought me through days of wonder and into a land of peace with him. Nobody knows the exact plan of God for your life but God. Jeremiah 29:11 a plan, a promise and a future is what is given by God. Each of our lives designed different and yet the same. A trust begins with God and develops over times. Learning the character of his son Jesus and doing our best daily to be a good example to others.
Expectations can carry us right into disappointments too. We think life will go one way and it turns out so different than we thought. The path ahead is filled with blessings, disappointments and real life stuff. Suddenly things happen and our lives change. If we hold tight to God's word, his plan and know he is able, we can breathe through it. We must honor God with all of our beings. One yes to God can change your life forever.
James 4:8 New International Version (NIV)
Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
Giving your complete life to God is a beginning of change. Changing the way you think, you act and allow God to grow you. His word (Bible) comes awake to your soul. Let God help you and ask forgiveness of sin. Then breathe the freedom of God and move into a life of trusting him. Don't forget that disappointments will come, but so will great things. Life has ups and downs but trusting the Lord brings everything into a new view of life.
Purpose this a good day. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Life can be amazing and don't forget to live in this day! After all, this is the day the Lord has made.
