Leaning

Re: Verse reading–Proverbs 3:5-6; Galatians 2:15-21; Ephesians 2:8-10 (day two)
Lean not in your own understanding; in ALL your ways acknowledge him…Proverbs 3:5-6. Picture yourself leaning against a tree or a wall, something that is seemingly stationary. What position is your body in? Probably some angle to the ground other than a right angle. You are off-balance, right? Imagine if that tree or wall suddenly disappeared, what would happen? You would stumble for sure, and if you had all your weight pressed up against it, you would fall. It’s an interesting picture of faith. God gives us feet to stand, but when we trust our own strength or understanding we deviate, sin, decay. It is only when we get off-balance from our own thoughts and lean totally against the almighty that we can walk straight. Although the tree or wall may fall down, Jesus never will. Lean into that trust.
