You Cannot Trust Yourself

Trust not in yourself or in any of your devices (mind, bodily impulses, thoughts, and most definitely not the heart), even in matters you think may be small, but lean on the Lord for everything and put all of your trust in Him.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Trusting in yourself is like walking through a dark cave with only the candlelight as your guide. Some passages you will see, many you will miss; some sharp edges you can avoid, others you will run into blindly. Trust in the Lord wholeheartedly, little one; He will shine the sun throughout the entire cave, illuminating every crevice such that darkness could not even hide within the smallest cracks.

A man that chooses to trust in his own devices in even the slightest way is also like a man digging a hole searching for water. He may find a little water, but only for a short while, for he will surely have to dig again as soon as the last hole dries up. This he will continue to do all of his life. Meanwhile, a river flows endlessly right behind him, merely a few yards away, but he does not see it because his stubbornness has taken him.

Let the Lord lead you, dear child, lest you’d like to find yourself digging for a lifetime for only a few drops of water, when you could have had an instant and endless supply, no digging required.

Oh, Holy Spirit…

Every Word You speak bears Life and Good Fruit. I pray every word imparted to each guest that comes seeking Your Life Water is only from You and not from any part of my flesh. It is Your Will, not my will, that will be done, and Your Words, not my words, that will be spoken.

Let all know the Great Pearls of Wisdom planted here are Gifts from You that You have graciously blessed me with and have called me to share. I pray You continue to bless me with Your Wisdom. Make me lowly and as humble, obedient, tender, and wise as Daniel.

Let all know I am just a vessel and nothing more, chosen by You so You can execute Your Will through me and speak through me. You are the Worthy One, my Lord. All glory and all credit goes to You. I am just a clay pot, but You are the Beautiful Flower I hold inside.

Let this Home bring the Light and Truth, the Hope and Love that so many of our little ones are starving for. Bless them, Father, and let them be filled and come for more. If any are blind, let them see; if any are deaf, let them hear. And if any hearts are hardened, make them soft.

Let all who come receive You and come to know All of You. Let not one soul that enters this Home be lost or fall away.

I deliver everything into Your Hands, Lord God. Wash me, purify and sanctify me for Your Work, consecrating me to You and making me holy as You are Holy.

Thank You for hearing my prayer, Father. Blessed be Your Holy Name forever.

In the Precious Name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
