“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths”.
– Proverbs 3:5-6
I wouldn’t say I have a favourite-all-time scripture but I definitely find myself depending on a particular scripture for a particular season.
This scripture has been one I have held on to since the beginning of the year. In a year of so much personal change….changes in different areas of my life, it got to a point where I felt I had no clue where I was going or what I was doing. I am someone who I and others will deem as very analytical and logical thinker, someone who would like to know the details first, analyse the situation then make a move. But in this current season, change has come so fast that I haven’t had the chance to do my basic thorough analysis of life.
For a ‘control freak’ like me this became somewhat distressing and overwhelming but when I read the scripture above, it provided me so much peace and still is providing me so much peace.
What I am told to do is simply trust and actually put aside my own understanding (including my intense analysis of things). Also to be open with my Father about my plans and acknowledging Him in all that I do. Being strengthened and comforted by the fact that He will guide me through where I need to go and what I need to do.
This has been my scripture of assurance and safety that the Lord will direct and guide my path. And He will surely direct yours too. In Jesus name, Amen!
