Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
God desires us to walk with Him. This was God’s desire for mankind from the beginning of creation. In fact, the Bible says that after God created Adam and Eve, He walked in the Garden of Eden “in the cool of the day” to meet with them (Genesis 3:8). Our highest priority in life should not be our careers, finances, or even families. Our greatest priority should be to fellowship with Almighty God. That is the way He wanted it from the beginning and that is the way it will be long after we leave this earth. As such, there will be times that we do not have answers to all the problems we are confronted with or questions we may have. If we knew the answer to everything instantly, we would have no need for God and God desires to direct our paths step by step as indicated in Proverbs 3:6 so that He can fellowship with us in the process. Psalm 37:23 says that “the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” It delights God to walk with you and reveal things to you step by step. Don’t be discouraged by not having all the answers at once because the Bible assures us that as we walk with God, His Holy Spirit “will guide you into all truth” (John 16:13). God delights in revealing secret things to us as believers (Proverbs 3:32). In fact, Jeremiah 33:3 states, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” He may not reveal everything at once, but He will reveal things as you continue to seek Him. Keep walking with God and He will reveal answers to life’s questions and the issues you are facing in time. In the process of walking with Him, you will gain a deeper appreciation of His faithfulness, love, and grace for you!
