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.
There are many choices to make in life. How are we to integrate our faith when making major life decisions? First, we see in this passage, that we are to “trust in the Lord with all our heart.” This is more than head knowledge, it is experiential knowledge. This “knowing” has gone past our brain into our experience so that it finally resides in our inner being. It is not a “blind faith,” it is what the author of Hebrews calls “being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Then it is out of our relationship with God that we “seek His will in all we do.” When we seek His will God is faithful to lead us and show us which path to take. What is it that you need help with? What is it that you need to decide? Seek God’s help today. Pray over the issue at hand. Seek counsel, apply wisdom, pray much and then allow Him to guide you. Let Him show you how to move forward. He promises He will.
Father, some decisions are so hard. I find myself so many times baffled at what to do. Situations, where I have dug myself into a hole, consequences of other people’s sins, circumstances beyond my control – all of these, have often left me rocking. Father, help me trust in You with all my heart today. Increase my faith. Impart Your wisdom to me and lead me in the way I should go. In Jesus’ name.
