I just can’t make sense

Proverbs 3:6 “Lean not to thy own understanding."

Trust Him when you understand nothing!   I’ve been praying and reading His Word for several hours and got so much stored in my heart about this verse and I just wish I download it properly.  Amen.  Understanding God’s ways comes from knowing who He is!  Without Bible revelation we cannot have faith, I didn’t say just Bible reading but we need to hear the heartbeat of God through His Word then we would be able to throw our hands up, surrender and say, “ I leave everything into your hands O Lord, though I understand nothing.”  I want someone out there to get what I got!  Lean not to your own understanding simply means not my brains Lord, not my strength, not my skills, not my smartness, not my knowledge and wisdom, not my experience but I just hand it over to you obediently.  Amen.

What do you do when God calls you to serve Him but you don’t have the money, experience, skills and knowledge?  All you have is just loads and loads of love for Him and faith in Him. That’s enough.  When God called Abraham and said: "Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you."(Genesis 22:2)  Do you think Abraham understood anything? This is so scary and painful, yet, he felt: “ Right now I understand nothing but I know that the God who gave me a son at the age of 100 will take care of me.”  Clap hands for God!  

This is total surrender; nevertheless, he was breaking on the inside but he kept moving higher and higher on the mountain with his son, when he was about to sacrifice his son, the angel of God stopped him and when  Abraham raised his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him a ram caught in the thicket by his horns; and Abraham went and took the ram and offered him up for a burnt offering in the place of his son.”(Genesis 22:13) Glory to Jesus!  Your spiritual eyes get opened to see God’s rewards for you only when you go higher and higher despite the challenges. (Tweet that) When Joseph trusted the Lord and kept moving forward in life, after several years of prison, pain, loneliness and betrayal, his brothers walk into Egypt, into his office, imagine!!!! The Bible says, Joseph recognized his brothers but they were not able to recognize him. Genesis 42: 8 “But Joseph had recognized his brothers, although they did not recognize him.” As you go higher and higher with God, you have an aerial view of everything !
