“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
For someone like me who is very keen on knowing even the smallest detail, I find it somewhat discouraging to not know where I am going. I don’t know if I am doing the right thing or not. I don’t know if what I do and where I am is in accordance to God’s will. The sad thing is, I pray everyday for our Heavenly Father to guide me and lead the way. I utter prayers that spoke of how I give my life to Him. And yet, there is still this restlessness within.
This passage pose as a challenge. A challenge to put one’s complete trust and faith in God. Even if you are the wisest and most intelligent person on this world, this human wisdom and knowledge does not compare to the knowledge and wisdom of God. And if we acknowledge that we are nothing without God, that everything we do, all that we are is because of His goodness and mercy, then He will surely lead us to the right path. The thing is, God already has the final picture, and we have to trust Him that He only wants the best for us. Surely, He will not lead us astray, and step by step, He will reveal to us the right way. Only if we put our complete trust in Him.

Father God, thank you for being very patient with me. Thank you Lord because you continuously sustain me and lead me to the right path. Right now Lord, I am feeling a little restless because of all the choices I have to make, together with the voices around me, Lord I don’t know what to do next. But Lord, You have always been faithful in blessing me with being in the right place at the right time doing the right thing. And I trust Lord that You will continue to do the same, leading me to the path you have for me. Lord, I lift to You my doubts and fears, and I ask the Holy Spirit to work within me. Strengthen what little faith I have and help me Lord to always put my complete and absolute trust in You. Amen.
