"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding." (Proverbs 3:5) This is harder than it sounds as we are always trying to figure out things for ourselves. Yes, we need to use good judgment and the good old C/S factor (common sense), but there are many times when our wisdom and knowledge just isn't enough. So why not trust in the one with infinite knowledge and wisdom. "Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite." (Psalms 147:5) He made the heavens and the earth and created man in his own image (Gen 1:1, 27). The next verse shows us how to trust in him. Proverbs 3:6 says, "In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Yes, he will guide us but we must acknowledge Him and pray to Him if we expect his help and guidance. Too often we just blunder ahead with something and "forget" to pray or acknowledge Him or do it in a fleeing moment. We need guidance from God in everything from raising and training children, our jobs, our homes, tasks that we must perform, and even our prayer and Bible study time. Of course, we must also get the mind of God for our church services so God may be allowed to move by the Holy Ghost in freedom with confusion as he is not the author of confusion (1Cor. 14:33). If we need to purchase a vehicle, we definitely need God's will and help. Marrying, taking a job, or a couple of the big choices that need God's help and approval on and if we are Christians, we want the help and approval of the one in whom we are serving, who is Jesus Christ.
The second thing we need to do in acknowledging God for our help is going to His Word. "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." (Psalm 119:11) Many times, the scripture will very easily and quickly provide the way in which we need to go as it is God's Word to mankind. It is something that will NEVER go away. "For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven." (Psalm 119:89) Man hates the Word of God because it condemns his sinful actions as we read in John 3:19-20. "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." But if you want to walk in the light and please God with joy instead of sorrow, you will come to the light of His Word. "But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."
There is a heaven and there is a hell. Chose Jesus Christ and take him as your Savior and walk in His Word and avoid eternal damnation. "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:9)
