TEXT: Prov. 3:5-6
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.
Friends just imagine that you know the future and you are able to determine what will happen in the next 10 yeas. Definitely your choices might have been different. You might have not made some mistakes and you might not have hesitated in some decisions. But the truth is that we do not have an acquaintance with tomorrow. Thus we make some foolish choices and do some things we later regret and cry “had i known…” This shows that our undoing was the lack of the knowledge of some factors that were not manifest to us then being in the future.
Wisdom is seen in the outcome of our decisions. Now as a child of God, you don’t have to be a victim of circumstance anymore. You can make wise choices and well informed decisions. How? You may ask. God who knows all things, past, present and future offers to guide you. He can lead you in all things. There are various ways he does that. He does not always have to speak audibly to you. He can lead you in many ways including through your circumstances. The psalmist is a witness. He says
“I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
” (Palms 16:7)
If you want to subscribe for this divine service, the scriptures shows us what to do. One of such things is to trust in the Lord with all your heart. Many of us have been taught to trust in men, in our endowments and in money. God wants you to give up all the things you trust in. You must repent and say to the Lord, ” [Men] shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses [we will not depend on our resources]: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.” Wait upon God; let him know He’s your only hope and He will definitely direct your steps.
Thank God for the grace to be led by him
repent and confess every trust in any man or thing apart from God
Tell God that your only trust is in Him as from now on
Ask Him to lead you and order your steps as from now on
Pray for the Church of God that His will might be done through
Pray for Nigeria that God will take over the affairs of the nation
Pray for me too that I might obtain mercy and find grace to help in all things
