"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
Proverbs 3: 5-6.
This age old truth is almost as widely known as John 3: 16.
Before being guided as promised by the Lord, there are three conditions that must be met first.
Firstly, we are considering the all knowing God here, so it stands to reason that He requires our utter and complete trust.
Secondly, seeing as His thoughts are much higher than ours, then our own understanding and reason will not do at all!
And lastly, our very existence and all of our abilities are because of His kind permission, therefore it is imperative that we acknowledge that, because we are totally unable to do anything without Him! When we are prepared to do our part - wonder of all wonders, this great God has promised to lead and guide us unworthies along life's journey.
