Although the Bible tells us to trust in the Lord with all our hearts, it is not easy for us to forego our own intellect to fully trust in God. After all, it was God who gave us the highest intellect of any life-form known on earth. So, it is easy for us to use our intellect to mastermind solutions to our problems without reference, reverence, or submission to God. It is only after we have exhausted every potential solution to our problems that we vaguely even consider God, instead of referring to Him first.
The thing to remember is, in going to God first we gain the best solution to propel our lives a quantum leap forward, bypassing all those weary obstacles that stand against us daily. –So next time, instead of waiting until all else fails, why not start with Him first?
