SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/04/15- “Trusting And Relying On The LORD!” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Premise Question: Can we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have a confident assurance and real expectation, of actually being able to successfully navigate our life, without having the great privilege and honor, the tools and benefits, of the leading, guiding, impactive and direct influence that The LORD’S Word, His Spirit and diligent fervent prayer provides us, which for all of us, is our divine compass, sextant and GPS?
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. (Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT)
Place your faith and complete confidence in and your utter reliance upon The Lord, in total abandonment, holding nothing back or kept hidden in the deep recesses of your heart in reserve. Don’t ever find yourself choosing to rely solely upon your own way of thinking, in the way you see and perceive things, in order to get yourself through life. But, always remember to acknowledge The LORD in everything you do or attempt to do in life; surrendering and yielding every part and partial of your life to Him. Then, and only then, will The LORD Himself pilot and guide you through life, on an upright course that will follow the correct paths, which will establish a safe and successful arrival at your desired destination, at life’s journeys end. (Proverbs 3:5-6 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There are a myriad of sources we can choose from to be influenced and guided by in our lives. Some may seem quite logical, extremely viable, good or may even tickle our fancy and appeal to our inclinations or predilection. As The LORD’S Word clearly delineates, though, there is a way and path set before each person that appears to be the best way to go, but when chosen, only leads to death and destruction. (Proverbs 14:12) His Word also tells us, that fools will always think and believe the way they are going and what they are doing, is right, and will therefore, not be open to wise counsel, but again, it only leads to a horrible ending. (Proverbs 12:14) The LORD gives everyone a choice! The decision and choice we make determines whether we will experience blessings or curses, life or death. (Deuteronomy 11:26, 30:19) Let us make the wisest of decisions, by always deliberately choosing to place our total faith and trust, relying only on and in The LORD and His faithful, hope filled, leading, guiding and correct direction, by completely relying on His Word, The Holy Spirit and our fervent prayer; which is our divine compass, sextant and heavenly GPS for successfully navigating this life! Blessings…
