“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the LORD and turn away from evil.” Proverbs 3:5-7, NLT
Have you ever had a feeling that something was so very, very right, but when you did it, it ended up being so very, very wrong?
That’s because feelings lie. They lie to you all the time! In fact, most of the wrong things you do actually feel right when you’re doing them. Just a few months into a job you ask yourself, “How did I end up here?” after six months into a relationship that once felt so right, you wonder, “What was I thinking?” A quick decision that seemed harmless at the time can leave you broken and scarred years later.
If you want fewer dead ends and difficulties in your life, depend on God’s wisdom, not what your feelings say or what your gut tells you. How can you get God’s wisdom? It’s simple: Pray. Talk to God, and let him talk to you through his Word. The Bible says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” James 1:5 NIV
God doesn’t want you to make poor choices. He doesn’t want you to hit dead ends or go through failure after failure. God wants you succeed. You must not depend on your own understanding. Seek Gods will because he wants to help you make wise decisions with your time , your money, and your relationships.
