“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not in your own understanding; in all your way acknowledge Him, and He will make your path straight”- Prov. 3:5-6
Every child of God should be led by the Holy Spirit; unfortunately, many of us are led by circumstances. We easily take out God in our planning and have our eyes on people we hope would assist us. We usually don’t put God in the know (though He knows all things) through prayers. We rely also on our understanding.
These are part of the reasons why our paths are at most times not straight and our journeys become tedious and longer.
You may ask, how does God guides? He guides through His word (Bible). We need to crave for guidance through His word by putting His words in our hearts and applying it to our situations.
Beloved, put your trust in God, lean not on your own understanding, daily read His word, put it in your heart, apply it to your situation and God will make your path straight.
