The Promise of Guidance

by Gail Rodgers

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.Proverbs 3: 5 & 6

January is a time when we look ahead and plan into a new year. Sometimes the way is exciting and clear. Other times it may be foggy and uncertain.

God’s word gives us sure footing as we stand on the threshold of a new day. Every single morning His call to us is to trust Him with our day. He will direct our paths one step at a time.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
   and lean not on your own understanding;
 in all your ways acknowledge Him,
   and He will direct your path.”
Proverbs 3: 5 & 6

These verses go on to encourage us not to be wise in our own eyes and to walk in ways pleasing to God. The promise of this kind of trust even aids our health as confidence in God will even reduce our stress.

Acknowledging Him in every step and every decision is a wise way to live.

Heavenly Father, Today I want to declare my trust in You and in Your divine ability to guide my pathway. When I don’t know which way to turn  I know You can direct me. Forgive me when I do my own best thinking about solutions and directions without acknowledging Your love for me and Your desire to direct me. Right now I do acknowledge that You alone know what is best. You alone can see around each blind corner and You alone can show me just what steps to take. Thank you for Your steadfast love and Your sure direction in my life. I love You, Lord and I pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.

    Father GOD Thank You for Your words & promise in Proverbs 3:5&6 ‘Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE will direct your path’ In life, there are so many things to care for, sometimes it is really confuse and do not know which directions we are heading? GOD is GOOD & HE promised us in Proverbs 3:5&6, so we just have to followed what the scripture said and put our trust plus faith in it and can have peace of mind and
    count on our GOD to make the decision for us. The Bible also said ‘All things work together for the Good of those who love HIM’ So faithful to…
