Have you ever tried to follow God in a half-hearted way? You know what that means. You like the idea of God, but His perfect will for our lives also can feel restrictive.
That’s the moment you are walking along the highway of life completely alone.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
Notice the precise language in these beautiful verses. We are to trust Him with all of our hearts. Don’t take your eyes off Him and follow your own choices. Be upfront that He is your peace. It’s then He picks you up, protects you, and carries you home.
Today is the day you’re thinking about all this. You’ve messed up. You’ve messed up in the most spectacular and disheartening way.
And it is exactly at this moment that God is ready to do the greatest miracle in your life. Tell him you’ve screwed up and have no idea where to turn.
There—you’re learning to completely trust Him. Commit your life to Him, and be consistent about it from now on.
Remember today: the turning point to an awesome future!
Lord, help us to reject our own flawed wisdom and rely totally on yours. Amen.
