Just Say 'No' to Reasoning

With all your heart you must trust the Lord and not your own judgment or understanding. Always let Him lead you and He will clear the road for you to follow. Proverbs 3:5,6

The Word doesn't say you have to have everything figured out down to the last little minute detail. You struggling via self-effort and reasoning trying to figure out when God is going to do it, how He is going to do it, which way and why He is going to be leading you a certain way or if He is going to do it is not going to get you anywhere.

As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8

You are not supposed to know everything. That is one of the reasons why you need God. If you stop trying to figure everything out, you will not be confused. It is okay to think about something to try to determine what to do, but if you start feeling confused, you have gone too far.

You are to trust and have faith that God's ways are better and that He knows what He is doing - He DOES NOT need your help. Pray and ask Him for wisdom and that He help you make right, godly, decisions. Choose to trust the Lord and line up your will with His. Take the steps that He gives you and trust Him to give you the answers that you need for the steps that you have to take.

Father, help us to trust You, with child-like faith ... faith that hasn't been watered down by the disappointments of life. Help us to believe in You and all You do, regardless of what's happened in the past and whether we understand it all or not. Give us peace in our minds. Help us to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit and not just do whatever we want to. In Jesus' name, amen.
