There are women that can cook and bake things from scratch. Because they are so successful in the kitchen, they never follow a recipe. They have a keen sense of what ingredients to use and what is needed to prepare a great meal. On the other hand, there are women who do not know how to cook at all and will gladly seek out a recipe on how to make a grilled cheese sandwich. They need detailed step-by-step instructions in order to prepare anything. Out of these two women, which one is more at risk of ruining a meal? The one that never uses a recipe. The Bible is our safe guide in life. No matter how intelligent you think you are, and no matter how many successes you have had in life, you are more prone to making a complete mess of things when you don’t rely on God and His wisdom. The Bible is our recipe for success in every area. Sometimes we can feel as though we know more than God, like we have everything under control, and we try to feel our way through life trusting our own understanding. However, we need the constant guidance of God, and we need His wisdom everyday of our lives and in every circumstance. Learn to consult with God and follow His wisdom and you will have success in every area of your life!
“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.” Proverbs 3:5 (AMP)
I understand I need You everyday of my life and in every circumstance I face. Guide me and lead me. Forgive me for ever taking matters into my own hands. I submit to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
