Proverbs 3:5,6 ‘Trust in the LORD with all your heart, on your own intelligence rely not,…be mindful of him and he will make straight your paths.’
“But God has given me a brain” you may say. The real question here is one of pride, do I make decisions through my own reasoning alone or do I consult God in prayer about my purpose and plans? A response or choice considered correct in worldly terms may not be what God really wants. Perhaps in 2013 you made some choices that seemed so right and yet you cannot see God’s hand in it, there is frustration at every turn. It is not too late to turn, seek the counsel of the good Shepherd. Psalm 23:2 ‘Beside restful waters he leads me, he refreshes my soul.’ Our God is the God of restoration.
