Trust in the Lord // 19-11-19

“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 recognise Him, and He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].” Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6‬ ‭AMP‬‬

The difficult thing about trying to listen to what God is saying is that we have so many other voices speaking to us at the same time! Things like culture and popular opinion, not to mention the internal demands of our own internal voice saying, ‘Trust me, listen to me!’ We also have an enemy speaking lies and half truths, to bring doubt and confusion! That’s why we are warned not to rely on our own insight and understanding, it is always flawed! We never have the whole picture but we can trust that God does! How do we then discern His voice? We keep our eyes on Jesus, we pray, we seek His will in everything, checking out the things we think with His Word and with others who love God too! If you are finding it hard to hear God in any given situation, ask Him to show you who you need to talk to today. He might just speak through them to get you moving again in the right direction 🙏🏼😊
