Proverbs Day 3
There is more than one way to skin a cat (but who would ever want to skin a cat!) There is often more than one way to do things, but wisdom is doing the right thing at the right time in the right way. We often know how to do something (or can figure it out on our own), but the truly wise person seeks and follows God's way because it is always the right way. It takes humility to admit that your way is not the best way, but there is great wisdom in laying aside your own plan in favor of God's will. Listen to my paraphrase of Proverbs 3:5-6.
Don't depend on your own understanding. Instead, trust the Lord completely at the very core of your being. Always seek to follow God's plan and give Him credit for everything and He will lead down a clear path.
"Lord, help me to be humble and set aside my own plan in favor of Yours. Show me Your will and give me courage and wisdom to trust You and do things Your way. Amen."
