Lean Not To Your Own Understanding

I believe I understand this passage more so now with recent events in my life. We cannot lean in the direction that our mind sends our emotions. When you don’t understand something it can sometimes be frustrating, angering, sad, etc. This feeling comes from the way you understand that which was presented to you.

Recently I had a frustrating encounter or two at work and it lead to me being placed on another team. Though I’d recently asked God for something like this to happen I was taken back when it actually happened to me! It literally came from left field with no prior warning, as it seemed things were going well. I knew God had his hand in that but when new information was told to me I became upset. However, what God reminded me of was that I should not lean to my own understanding of how things should or normally play out.

God used the situation to move me to the place He saw fit for me to be. I trust that He works everything together for my good so I know this is best. Despite all that has happened I am grateful to be a part of a new team and am hopeful that I will be able to excel in the task left in my hands.

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

  2. God sees All and knows All. He has His plans for our life, which is a wonderful thing. Continue to trust and obey. Be positive in all you do and remember to work heartily as unto God. You are His handy work and He is greatly to be praised. I am Godly proud of you.
