    WHY SHOULD WE NOT LEAN TO OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING??? CAUSE LEANING WILL CAUSE US TO FALL HARD! THE LORD WHO CREATED ALL CREATION NEW US EVEN BEFORE WE WAS BORN! HE KNOWS EVERY STRAND OF HAIR ON OUR HEAD! NOTHING HAPPENS IN LIFE WITHOUT HIM ALREADY KNOWING IT! WE MUST KNOW THAT GOD HAS OUR BEST INTEREST AND WANT US TO SUCCEED IN LIFE! HE WANTS US TO PROSPER AND BE IN GOOD HEALTH! ONLY SATAN IS AN AUTHOR OF CONFUSION WHO COMES TO KILL, STEAL, AND DESTROY ANYTHING GOOD! WE WANT UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING THATS HAPPENS IN LIFE, BUT WE CAN TRUST GOD FOR EVERYTHING! LORD I AM LEARNING TO TRUST U MORE AND MORE EACH DAY! AMEN! GLORY BE TO GOD!!!
