”Lean not to your own understanding…”” [Proverbs 3:5]

To ‘lean’ means to rely for assistance or support—to bend or slant away from the vertical.’  It means to open the floodgate that will overwhelm your soul and take over your thinking! Don’t go there!

Every command of God, demands a decision of your will.  A staking of your claim on something other than your own understanding.  Wherever there is a negative there is also a positive—a wrong way and a right way—a way of failure or a way of favor—you choose.

If ever we are going to understand God and His ways we must keep in mind this morning that ‘understanding’ means to ‘stand under’ –another word for submission. Submit your mind to the mind of Christ and peace will flood your soul.  The Spiritual mind knows to ”…demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” [2 Corinthians 10:5]
