I love this verse because we have our end of the bargain, and The Lord does the rest. Our role is to trust in The Lord. In doing so, we know that His plans for us are good and to give us hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). From there, we have to make a choice to not allow our earthly understanding to overhaul the knowledge of His infinite wisdom. On our best day, we couldn’t make a choice that would supersede God’s vast knowledge. And our last course of action is to submit my ways to Him. When we do this, my friends, certainly He will make our paths straight. He will ensure that we no longer have to carry the burden of being in control or having our way. His way is always the best.
Father, I thank You that You know what is best for me. You know all the days You have planned for me. Help me to walk in them and not be like the entitled child insisting on my way. Help me to fully submit to Your will and allow You to take the lead. I trust You and look forward to walking down the path You have for me. I relinquish control today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
