Stop Leaning on Your Own Understanding. by Tammy Glover

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.   In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your path straight.”  Proverbs 3:5 

Are you looking at a pile of bills, and trying to figure out how they are going to get paid from a bank account that’s at zero?  No matter how you do the math, zero from zero still equals zero.  Stop leaning on your own understanding, you’re about to fall.  The Lord says that He will provide all your needs.  One of the many names of God is Yahweh Yireh which is Hebrew for, the Lord sees or provides.   You may also recognize it as Jehovah Jireh.  Now, call on Him. 

Have you been sick and the doctors can’t figure out what’s wrong with you?  They’ve given you medicine that only makes you feel worse and you don’t know if you’re going to make it.  Stop leaning on your own understanding.  The Lord says that by his stripes we are healed.  He also says that he heals all our diseases. Believe in his word.  “Your faith has healed you.”   Matthew 9:22Are you looking for a job or a promotion?  You can see the open doors in the distance but when you get to them, they slam shut in your face.  You’re starting to think that maybe you’re destined to remain in a mediocre position.  Stop leaning on your own understanding and trust in the Lord.  “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  Jeremiah 29:11Are you wondering if you will ever find that husband or wife, or if you’ll ever be blessed with children?  You’re starting to doubt that it may be something meant for you.  Stop leaning on your own understanding.  It says in God’s word, “delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:

Trust in the Lord.  In Him there is truth, wisdom, light, healing, protection and abundance.  These things are available to every single believer.  Sometimes, we forget but today, let us be reminded.  God loves you and wants to bless you. 

“So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.   And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19.
