Do Not Lean on your Own Understanding
There are many things that can hamper our faith. One of the things that at times can cause us to stumble in our faith is our own human reasoning. God has given us the ability to think and use our reasoning to figure out solutions. This isn’t necessarily bad, except when is causes us to not trust God like we should.
Sometimes we allow ourselves to get in our own way. Sometimes when we struggle with wavering faith, it is because our own human reasoning gets in the way. We try to figure things out in our own mind instead of doing what God wants us to do, because it just doesn’t make since to us. This leads us to question God and try to justify in our mind why we don’t trust Him in what He is asking us to do. Proverbs 3: 5 will tell us not to use our own human reasoning.
Proverbs 3:5, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.”
Great Proverb to remember and apply to our lives.
