"Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. - NIV Proverbs 3:5-6
Many times in our lives, we stress about things that we can’t control. That stress is something we create because of our lack of trust in God and our earthly flesh. The enemy whispers in our ear and tries to knock us down and create anxiety that isn’t needed. This is a battle that can be won. We are told to trust in the Lord with ALL our heart. It’s often hard for us to give God our all, to lean not on our own understanding. We have all tried to do things on our own and, more times than not, we fail miserably. Lean into God and He will give you understanding. In ALL your ways acknowledge Him. Start a relationship with Him and give Him your ALL. When we do that, He makes our paths straight. Stress doesn’t have to control you. It’s time we all lean into God and experience the fullness of His presence. He wants total access to our lives, and, with His presence in our lives, stress begins to loosen its grip on us. Pray today that God would provide you with guidance to know when to lean into Him, so stress can have no grip on your life.
