Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. 7 Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the LORD and turn away from evil. 8 Then you will have healing for your body and strength for your bones.
There are all kinds of things that we depend on. Sometimes we depend on people. Friends, family and others, but so often people let us down. Sometimes we depend on money or a budget, yet money will run out at some point. We even trust ourselves because everyone and everything else lets us down or goes away.
God has a lot to say about what we depend on. If everything else lets us down, we can trust that God will never let us down. Depending on our selves comes to an end as well. That might be sickness or weakness, blindness or short sightedness, lack of time or lack of ability.
Trusting God makes sense. He will take us further than we can go on our. God will help us more than any medicine, any doctor or any counselor. God will provide what we need and make it go further than any money or any other resource could ever go.
When we stop being impressed with our own wisdom and our own success, then we can really be successful. That is where we will find assurance for our hope. That is where we will find our testimony is being built. That is where others will see God and be challenged to meet Him for real.
What happens when we lean on and depend on God? What happens is God will direct our lives, God will give us wisdom, God will give us strength and healing. Those are things I need. How about you?
Stop depending on yourself and start depending on God. Here is the question I have to ask myself: who ya depending on?
