Devotional: Our Paths Made Straight
Christian Devotion about trusting God rather than ourselves
"...Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord
with all your heart and mind and do not rely on
your own insight or understanding. In all your
ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He
will direct and make straight and plain your paths..." -
Proverbs 3:5-6 (AMPC)
It's so important to lean on and trust in the Lord
rather than ourselves. For us to lean on our own
insight or understanding is foolishness. We do not
know what the future holds for us.
We need to lean on and trust in God's Wisdom, to be
led by Him. It's hard to lead a mule where it does
not want to go—so it is with us. If we're so caught
up in what we think is best, then God cannot get us
to the place He wants us to be.
In all our ways, we are to acknowledge Him—for
He longs to be involved in every area of our lives.
He then can direct us and make straight our paths.
When on the Lord we lean and trust,
He then directs and straightens our paths.
