Proverbs 4:26 (NIV)
“Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.”
Proverbs 16:25 (NKJV)
“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death. “
Ever meet anyone who thinks they know everything. They always think they know the right way to go, the right thing to do, the right thing to say. Scripture makes it very clear that no one knows everything except God himself. That may come as a shock to some, but no one this side of heaven knows everything. If what scientists say is true about the percentage of brain that we use (10%), then logistically, it would be impossible to know everything.
Scripture is careful to warn us regarding how we walk and where we walk. Solomon, who is the author of many of the writings in the Book of Proverbs, gives us vital directives so that we can avoid the pitfalls that come with self-righteous thinking. As believers, we need to come to the place where we accept the fact that we need help and then not be shy in asking for it.
It is when we give careful consideration to our life and our situation that we come to realize, if we are truly honest with ourselves, that we don’t have a clue. God always wants what’s best for us. While there are consequences for everything we say and do, he is there to pick us up and redirect us … 1000x if necessary. That’s how deep and abiding His love is for us. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
