“Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].” (Proverbs 3: 5-6, Amplified Bible)
It is easy to believe that we must be in control of our own experiences. It is certainly right to want to be self-reliant and to follow our own vision. We can gladly give up the need for others to tell us what we should or should not do, think, or be.
But as we turn from the opinions of others, we don’t want to needlessly burden ourselves either. This trust in our own human knowledge or capacity can be stressful, as well as limiting. Personal understanding will get us only so far, and willfulness can as easily lead us astray as it can lead us forward.
So, let’s let God do the work for us. Let’s release our consciousness and our lives to God Who can see what we cannot and has infinite, impeccable wisdom. Let’s have spiritual confidence by trusting God’s guidance and His Love that makes this direction clear, right, and satisfying.
Relying on the self and on ego can make for a wearying and rocky road. But, giving our heart’s purpose to God, leaning on Him, opens the way. It removes impediments in thought and on our course, and guides us progressively, rightly, naturally, into our next golden moment of God’s good Life.
