If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself. In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success. (Proverbs 3:5-6 TLB)
If we want to find favour with both God and man, and have a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then we must learn to trust the Lord completely. Before we do anything, we must find time to seek God through prayer and reading His Word. We must acknowledge His sovereignty over every aspect of our life, He will guide and lead us into the path of truth. As you prayerfully consider the path God wants you to take, here are some other things you can do to keep on the right path: Study God’s Word and be watchful for the signs He gives. Associate with faith-filled Christians, who are relying upon the Holy Spirit of God in the name of Jesus Christ, who are optimistic friends who will encourage your spiritual growth. Listen carefully to that still, small voice that speaks to you in the quiet moments of your daily devotional time. And be patient. Your Heavenly Father may not always reveal Himself as quickly as you'd like, but rest assured that He wants to use you in wonderful, unexpected ways in accordance to His plan for your life.
Holy Spirit, teach me to listen and heed to the Word of God. Teach me to trust God more and to put God first in everything I do. Let me lean, rely, and depend upon Him and not upon my own understanding. Thank You that I can trust You completely in Jesus Christ. Amen.
