Lean on the Lord

Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.

Do not be wise in your own eyes. Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will mean health to your flesh and strength to your bones.

Man could write a thousand pages and not even come close to the wisdom contained in this Scripture.

Read it again. Let each line soak into your soul. Does any of it apply to you?

How easy it is to lean to your own understanding. How tempting it is to feel like you're the wisest person ever to come down the pike. And in this busy world, do we take the time to acknowledge Him in ALL our ways?

And then we get too busy, too stressed, and bummed out. (Just where the Enemy wants us.) When all we had to do was lean on Him.

The battle is real . . .
