Trusting in Jehovah God with a complete heart involves doing things his way, according to his will. Central to doing so is our continually approaching him in prayer and making heartfelt requests for his guidance.

''Lean not'' is a Command of God,just as He said ''thou shalt not''eat of it(Genesis 2:17)for it was destructive,and so is also our own understanding in life,so We must submit,and get the understanding of God(Proverbs 4:7)in the matters of life.

IT WAS AN ENCOURAGEMENT THIS MORNING I HAD A LOT OF THINGS; CHILD WRITING EXAMS IN A WEEK`S TIME BUT NOT READING AND DAUGHTER DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND AND KNOW WHAT SHE IS GOING THRU AND BUDGET NOT BALANCING. BUT GOD TOLD ME NOT TO RELY ON MY UNDERSTANDING BUT TO GIVE IT. RIGHT NOW MY BURDEN IS GONE.

This scripture is telling us to put our trust on the Lord for whatever is happening in our lives, we must know that God is always there for us and we must not depend on our own understanding because we are His burdens

just heard from my regional manager telling me to close down my branch cuz well, business is pretty low. yet rental dues at the office & home r in excess of three months; i hv the whole time been rationally been thinking on hw to get around this prayerfully tho! anyhw, to realize that this scripture profoundly hints that i should literally let go & let GOD, to kinda be in honey moon, a holiday while some else oversees my affairs is not only confusing but demands patience & resilience. qn is by tiring & worrying wl i sort anything?! this hv i failed to do for the past three months. so what do i gotta do if not to trust & obey a mysterious~simple supernatural omnipresent GOD who has got good plans for me & u?!^

That scripture is sayin that we should be death to our thing, sight, cir***stance around us, and be alive unto His promises.

At the moment, im going through a Trying time in my life. My wife as left me a year ago, i am left financially with burdens. My salary doesnt cover my debts. This scripture helps me to thank Jesus 'i still have my job' i will continuely seek the lords guidance in my life. He will make a way where there seems to be no way? That's the great i am ... We serve. He knows all things, and he as a plan? For each and every one of us. Amen.

 

Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2013-08-03 07:07:39:

Trust in the Lord with all thy heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. The scripture tells us that wisdom is the principle thing; therefore seek wisdom, but above all thy seeking get a good understanding. They Lord will guide us with His eye when we trust totally in Him, and not lean unto our understanding. Jehovah has all knowledge, and knows the end from the beginning. So have faith in God, and He will never fail you.

God can be fully trusted with our lives. If we just rely on ourselves we will miss it. He knows the right choice every time.

 

Joseph Kirianki's comment on 2013-07-24 13:53:40:

Giving God full control in our life so that he direct us in our daily life

 

Josephine's comment on 2013-05-29 16:10:22:

This scripture helps an remind me that Jehovah's understanding is greater than ours ,it is he we love with all our hearts and trust in him with all we got.When we human rely on on our on understanding it ends up all wrong,because w humans cannot rule ourselves look at the wars and other things result from our own understanding!

 

Martha Richardson's comment on 2013-01-07 18:36:59:

One of my favorites I love that scripture

 

Mary J's comment on 2012-08-25 04:16:10:

This verse gives me the blessed assurance that I can confidently believe in God to care for and sustain me in every situation of life.Trust means that I believe, and if I believe, it becomes easy to trust.
