Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
It says to trust God with our heart not our mind.
Our hearts hold our deepest feelings and beliefs. These are the things that we know fully, completely and for sure.
It doesn’t matter what the world or the people around us are trying to make us believe or what they want to convince of us… if we know it in our hearts, nothing and no one will change our minds.
Our minds know basic knowledge, this is where we store all the things we learn, wether we believe it or know them to be true or not.
Trust God with all your heart, not your mind.
Lean not on your own understanding.
In my own journey with God I’ve learned that he is working even when it doesn’t make sense or look like he is.
God’s ways and thoughts are much higher then my human intellect.
So, if I spin it till it makes sense to me, I’ve probably got it wrong. However, if I sit back and admit: ‘I’ve no idea what you’re doing here God, but I’m trusting that you have a plan’ it gives him room to work and to move me in the direction he wants me to go.
I’m reading ‘Destined to Win’ by Kris Vallotton and he said something along these lines although I did reword it and put my own spin on it.
