One thing is for sure, I am not alone in my feelings. It seems like everyone I talk to lately has some big decisions or obstacles they are dealing with. My prayer for all those struggling today, as well as myself, is that we will seek God and not our own understanding for what lies ahead.
Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."
Phillipians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
I spent some time searching over 100 verses that mention the word understanding today. Now I know why the two above scriptures are so commonly used for teaching and directing in our Christian walk. They are so perfect in giving comfort and guidance to those desiring a word from our Lord. Thank you God for making scriptures come alive in a personal way!
