“Understanding will never bring you Peace. That’s why I have instructed you to trust in Me, not in your understanding. Human beings have a voracious appetite for trying to figure things out, in order to gain a sense of mastery over their lives. But the world presents you with an endless series of problems. As soon as you master one set, another pops up to challenge you. The relief you had anticipated is short-lived. Soon your mind is gearing up again: searching for understanding (mastery), instead of seeking Me (you Master).”
From Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young, August 7th (read it on the 7th, decided today that it’s too good not to share)
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
and do no lean on your own understanding.”
– Proverbs 3:5, which sat stuck to my headboard for many many years.
