For the last week, I've been searching the scriptures for answers. I've really been searching for what King Solomon had: WISDOM.
It seems kind of elusive sometimes, I guess because I "lean on my own understanding" so many times more than I lean on God's understanding. It seems easier to just do whatever I want instead of asking God to point me in the right direction and keep me on the straight and narrow.
Yesterday I read something that gave me that "ah-ha" moment. It was from Oswald Chambers.
I have made some big mistakes in my life, but I cannot go back and retrieve those missed opportunities, so I must trust Him and go to the next thing!
I must let God take care of those missed opportunities and trust Him as I go with him into my future.
TRUST: now that is another thing, but it goes hand in hand with wisdom.
Proverbs 3: 5 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 direct your paths.
To receive God's guidance I must seek God's will in ALL I do. Turning EVERYTHING over to Him.
Trust Him completely in ALL. do . his plan is in not be wise in my own eyes. Pray and read His word to receive His guidance. His plan is in His word. To know His plan, I have to be in His word. Wisdom and Understanding and Fear of the Lord cannot enter my life until I know His word and trust him in EVERYTHING.
Prayers would greatly be appreciated, as I begin AGAIN! Thank you God for loving me even when I mess up really badly!
