Lean on Him

Today's Scripture:

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding"

(Proverbs 3:5, NIV).

Today's Word:

Are you facing a situation that seems like it has no logical solution? Sometimes we have to turn our minds off, stop trying to figure it all out, and stop overanalyzing and researching everything. When you don't see the answer in the natural realm, it's time to stop leaning on your own understanding and choose to trust God.

Sometimes our minds can be a distraction to our "inner sensor." Our minds can allow fear and dread to distract us from what God is speaking to our hearts. That's why the Scripture says that we aren't to lean on our own understanding. We have to take time to shut off the distractions, shut off fear, and listen to what's going on inside of us where God speaks. That's where faith rises up. That's where all of the sudden you'll feel a spark of hope even when things look impossible.

Today, no matter what it looks like in the natural, choose to lean on Him. Trust that He has favor in store for your future. Trust that something good is about to happen. As you lean on Him with your mind, soul and strength, you'll see His goodness and break through to new levels in every area of your life!

Prayer for Today:

Heavenly Father, today I choose to lean on You. I choose to trust that You are working on my behalf. I won't put my confidence in what I see, but I will trust in Your Word which remains true forever. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
