Day 5 - Trust Walk

God Gives Us Wisdom Day 5: I trust You, Lord. My path is lit and I don't have to search for anything. Psalms 119:105

You've lost your job or are ready to find another. What do you do? Well conventional thinking tells you to go on job sites, look in the newspapers, ask around, and the like. For many, finding a job can become a full time job.

Many think this is what you should do: search. God helps those who helps themselves, they say. But this isn't biblical. Nowhere in the Bible does it say He helps those who help themselves.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Matthew‬ ‭7:7-8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

So it's Matthew 7 that says you should do a job search? Well, it all depends on how much you know the Word. Seek here is to search for God and his direction. Why? Because He is our author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2). Why else? Because He knew us before we were ever formed (Jeremiah 1:5). Also, he said, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."  (Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭KJV‬‬) He knows what's in store for us, so why not depend on Him. But God helps those who help themselves, huh?

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs‬ ‭14:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

According to Proverbs 12, only if you want a path of destruction do you help yourself. Instead,

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Seek him! He will tell you exactly where to look for your next assignment. It may come swiftly, it may be awhile. While you wait, he's building your trust in Him. Through the storm, you are becoming strong. Stand still and wait until he guides you.

So seek Him! Trust Him! You can't go wrong. He has given you a lamp at your feet and a light on your path (Psalm 119:105). His Word is your guide. So search for what? His guidance. His Kingdom. His path for you.

Happy searching,

Keiyia JOYet George
