Proverbs 3:5-6 (amp)
Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
Have you ever been at a stop light waiting for the light to change and suddenly the car in front of you and beside you begin to move forward. How many times have you taken your foot off the brake and proceeded to drive without even looking to see if the light was green. Sometimes in life we begin moving, doing and busying ourselves just because everything else around us is moving. There are times when the light is still red for your journey or maybe has taken a turn from the majority’s path but you and I must learn to obey the signals for our own course.
On the other hand, we also can get distracted with the trivialities of life and miss our green light and have to sit still until the light turns green again. We must practice being alert to the instructions God gives us and keep our focus in the right direction.
