Day 18 - God Directs Your Ways

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Here’s 
an 
exercise 
for 
the 
next 
time 
you 
find 
yourself 
up 
to 
your 
neck 
 in 
question 
marks. 
Whenever 
you’re 
wondering 
which 
path 
to 
go 
down, 
 and 
perhaps 
feeling 
pressured 
by 
the 
fast 
pace 
of 
life 
to 
make 
a 
quick 
 choice, 
ask 
yourself:

Am 
I 
looking 
to 
and 
leaning 
on 
God?

Do 
I 
put 
more 
stock 
in 
God’s 
counsel 
than 
in 
my 
own 
ideas 
or 
the 
 opinions 
of 
others? 
Am 
I 
open 
to 
the 
idea 
that 
God 
may 
very 
well 
ask 
 me 
to 
do 
something 
that 
everyone 
else 
thinks 
is 
crazy?

Do 
I 
honestly 
want 
what 
God 
wants—in 
every 
part 
of 
my 
life? 
Am 
I 
 willing 
to 
wait 
until 
I 
have 
a 
clear 
sense 
of 
his 
leading?

If 
you 
can 
answer 
“yes” 
to 
these 
questions, 
God 
promises 
to 
direct 
you. 
 How 
good 
is 
that?

God’s Promise to Me
•If 
you 
trust 
me 
and 
seek 
me, 
I 
will 
show 
you 
the 
way 
to 
go.

My Prayer to God
You 
want 
me 
to 
trust 
you, 
Lord, 
with 
all 
my 
heart, 
and 
I 
want 
to 
do 
that. 
 You’re 
worthy 
of 
my 
trust. 
Forgive 
me 
for 
the 
times 
I 
doubt. 
In 
times 
of 
 uncertainty 
I 
know 
I 
need 
more 
than 
mere 
human 
understanding. 
I 
need 
 you! 
I 
want 
your 
will, 
God. 
Please 
show 
me 
which 
way 
to 
go.
