We’re like the boy who tests the doubtful ice instead of skating confidently where God is leading. What is our faith worth if we don’t trust completely? It is perfectly natural to trust in our own understanding, to rely on our own natural strengths, gifts, or talents (and indeed some modern prophets tell us to do so!). But it is the walk of faith to trust His teaching and direction. Give Him first place and let Him have precedence. This is the secret of safe guidance and peaceful progression. Simple dependence upon Him, obeying Him implicitly–this is how to acknowledge Him in all thy ways. – Al Bryant
“The reflections of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. All a man’s ways seem right in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the motives. Commit your activities to the LORD and your plans will be achieved. The LORD has prepared everything for His purpose.” Proverbs 16:1-4a (HCSB)
