And He Will Direct Your Paths

And He Will Direct Your Paths…

I was once attempting to show mercy… to an ant. I was trying to lead it around its obstacles to freedom outside. I was trying to be an ant hero.

But the problem was I was dealing with an especially dumb ant. It kept going the wrong way, no matter what I did.

Now ants do indeed have brains the size of a small bread crumbs. But the ant didn’t have to have a high I.Q. All it needed to do was to trust me. If it trusted me, that ant would have functioned as if it had super-intelligence, as compared to its fellow ants, functioning on the reasoning of a human brain.

Compared to God, our intelligence is even less than that of a bread crumb-sized brain. So if you’re wise, you won’t rely on your own intelligence and understanding. If you do, you’ll be living like a dumb ant.

But if you trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding….then the Lord will direct your path and you won’t live your life like a dumb ant!

All you Israelites, trust in the Lord—he is their help and shield. House of Aaron, trust in the Lord—he is their help and shield. You who fear him, trust in the Lord—he is their help and shield. The Lord remembers us and will bless us: He will bless his people Israel, he will bless the house of Aaron, he will bless those who fear the Lord—small and great alike. May the Lord cause you to flourish, both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 115:9-15

What have you been dealing with, struggling with, or concerned about? Today, stop struggling and commit to God. Trust in the Lord and lean not to your own understanding.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
