Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding"
So, here’s the problem with leaning on our own understanding; it’s that we are leaning. If we are leaning then we are not standing straight and if we are not standing straight then we are crooked. Also, if we are leaning then we are going to fall down. This is what leaning on our own understanding does; it causes us to be crooked and falling down. However, praise You Lord, when we trust in the Lord with all our heart (our center) then we are standing up straight and we won’t fall down. Trusting in the Lord is an upward call. "I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord" (Psalm 121:1-2). "To You I lift up my eyes, O You who are enthroned in the heavens!" (Psalm 123:1).
Trusting in the Lord is lifting up with our eyes, stretching up with our hands, and reaching up with our hearts, and this causes us to be perfectly balanced in God, in this world, and we won’t fall down. Today, don’t lean but instead stand up and put your full trust in the Lord. Let Him lift you up into His Own heavenly view and understanding of all things being seen through our victory in Jesus Christ. Trusting is not leaning down, it is lifting up. Hallelujah!
