His Encouragement #9- Lean

I’ve joined my blogging friends for a new facet of my blog, called His Encouragement, inspiring scriptures shared each Thursday.


Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  Proverbs 3:5 KJV

It’s a familiar verse, one that I’m sure you’ve heard over and over again. But then again, maybe you need to be reminded today just like I did.

On whom are you leaning today?

It can be hard sometimes to lean on the Lord when we don’t understand why he’s doing what he’s doing, or he’s allowing something we think he shouldn’t, or we’re waiting for an answer and he’s not answering.

Are you leaning on your own understanding? Are you relying on your own wisdom, knowledge and life experience to get through whatever you are facing today?

Instead of leaning on yourself, turn your trust to the Lord and lean on him. He will never fail you. He will never forsake you. He will never forget you.  

What scripture is encouraging you today? Share it with us!
