Day 7 – Trust in the Lord
‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones’. Proverbs 3:5-8 NKJV
At the beginning of a new year, new job or a new phase of life; say a fresh marriage relationship, for example; we are filled with fresh hopes. New beginning presents fresh opportunities & aspirations. On the other hand, they are also characterized with the concerns of the unknown. As you begin this New Year, our scripture for today is well spelt out in the Contemporary English version:
With your heart you must trust the Lord and not your judgement. Always let him lead you, and he will clear the road for you to follow. Don’t ever think that you are wise enough, but respect the Lord and stay away from evil. This will make you healthy, and you will feel strong’
Do not depend on your past experiences. No matter what you see, feel, think, or hear. Determine to trust God and allow him lead you. You are set for a peaceful and prosperous year, in Jesus name.
