A few nights ago, I was reminded of how we can have true peace in spite of our circumstances.
Sometimes there is a reason why he is reiterating what He spoke to your heart.
If we lean into Him and not on our own understanding, He will direct our paths.
To lean into someone suggests being in close proximity to them, intimate relationship, close enough to hear them whisper.
Lord, draw me close to your heart, so I don’t miss one word You would whisper to me.
Anoint my ears to hear Your voice with clarity and precision, anoint my eyes to see beyond the natural and beyond myself.
“Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions (understanding).
With all your heart rely on Him to guide you, and He will lead you in every decision you make.
Become intimate with Him in whatever you do, and He will lead you wherever you go.
Do not think for a moment that you know it all, for wisdom comes when you adore Him with undivided devotion and avoid everything that is wrong.
Then you will find the healing refreshment your body and spirit long for.”
Proverbs 3:5-8 The Passion Bible Translation
