Lean Not On Your Own Understanding

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;”

NIV Proverbs 3:5; KJV Proverbs 3:5

We often find it hard not to lean on our own understanding. We think we are so smart, so wise and we are such good decision makers. We try really hard to be independent and do our own thing, just to find ourselves in all sorts of difficulties. We need to understand that we can not be independent; not from The One who created us. He wants us to depend on Him, to trust Him, to seek His presence and His Love. Apart from Him we can’t make it in this world, we can’t have a purposeful life, filled with joy and happiness. In all things, let’s first seek God, seek His wisdom, His will. He understands our purpose much better than we do.
