5-12 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline; don’t sulk under his loving correction. It’s the child he loves that God corrects; a father’s delight is behind all this.
Have you ever thought before you sit down any where, to check to make sure the seat you are sitting on will not break? No, we sit down, with no thought in our minds if the chair or sofa or where ever we are about to sit on will just hold us up. We could easily just fall to the ground and hurt ourselves. But when it comes to our lives we lean on the things we should not we rely on friends and family for encouragement and some times we don’t get that encouragement or support we need. But most of all we just lean on our own selves. This is not good, you see we have a God who is just waiting on you to lean on Him. He is just waitng on your prayer your cry out to Him so that He can help you and get you through your most difficult of days. God is wanting you to rely on Him. As the New Year approaches let us go into the New Year knowing we can rely on our God who is waiting for us, and he will get us through the good times and tough times of 2012.
Pray: Dear God, as I prepare for the new year, help me to rely fully on you. help me not lean on myself or wait on someone else who probably won’t come through for me. You are my God and who better to put all my trust in. Thank you Lord for everything u do for me, continue to bless me. Amen.
