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 show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil. Proverbs 3:5-7
Life is filled with choices. if you are not in the process of making a major decision in your life right now, at one point or another you will be facing one. When it comes you do not want to be without the knowledge that will help you make the right decision. For a child of God that means you have to follow God’s will. You will learn the will of God through His word. From the text, there is nothing more important to God than to let His children know the path they need to take in life. This is why having a daily intake of His word will help you discover His will for your life. Once you gain wisdom from God through His word, you must allow the Holy Spirit to help you use what you’ve learned. He will help you by guiding you on how to apply the truth learned in your daily life. It is when you obey what you learned from God that will enrich your relationship with Him. “How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word” (psalm 119:9). When you trust “the Lord with all your heart,” it means that you yield completely in total submission your rights to determine the direction of your life. It means that you have to stop your selfish desires battle with God’s will for your life. This is why there are those that do not feel the victory they should have been experiencing because they rely on their own understating. When you are overcome by indecision because of your doubt and you let the world crowd you mind, you will remain that way and will not be able to live the life God had set for you. You become unreliable for you always change your mind. “Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do” (James 1:8). King Solomon discovered the truth of trusting God’s wisdom alone and it begins by fearing God. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7).
