Who do you trust? Who should you?

When a problem arises, I process it. That is not the problem. It is the manner in which I process it. I talk to process. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. That whole balance thing again raises its head at me. I talk to others aloud, quite vociferously in order to make sense in my mind about situations big or small, problems big or small. So who I am I looking to for input? My husband, family, friends, co-workers all are included. Sometimes I even pray about it. What is the problem there? Always I seek others opinions, SOMETIMES I pray. I have it backwards.

We do life with people. All people are broken to some degree, Romans3:23. So in life no matter how much someone loves you, they will fail you. Your mom will fail you and she loves you dearly. Your dad will fail you, your child, best friend, brothers, sisters, spouses will all fail you. Only God will never fail you. s

So my life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6. I figured out the whole, lean not on your OWN understanding. I have learned not to always trust what others say, but reading today in 2 Chronicles about King Asa who had Judah focused on the Lord to the point he even dethroned his own Grandmother for building an idol and forsaking God. Yet, to prove just how human we ALL are, Asa goes to King of Aram to help him through a tight situations. In this verse he is told that because of his reliance on the King of Aram and not the Lord he will be at war. He is reminded in the past when he relied up on the Lord, the Lord delivered him.

So we are not only to not trust our own understanding, though it is not a problem to seek the counsel of others to weigh decisions....again we are reminded to SEEK YE FIRST, the KINGDOM of GOD.....

With both conviction which I recieve from the word of God and excitement for this revelation , I must consider to move forward ALWAYS praying and SOMETIMES seeking the counsel of others....

TRUST in the LORD with all your heart..........he will guide your path....-Proverbs
