The Power Of Belief

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.—Proverbs 3:5

In this life—the great human experiment—we are given the freedom to think. Our freedom to think is evidence that we, as people are believing beings. And over a lifetime, we construct a belief system based on our interaction with propositions from people. Propositions that we feel, see, and hear that become beliefs we have about education, government, business, and religion. Large clusters of these beliefs are called "belief systems" or "worldviews" that govern our thinking, and sometimes we even adamantly defend. But what if we, products of our environment, were adamantly wrong? What if we are not objective truth? What if our perspective, truth, beliefs, propositions, had small shreds of untruth in them corrupting the whole? It is this truth we must face when we "lean on our own understanding." Your reality is never the real truth. There is only one who is truthful, and he is not you—so "trust in the Lord."

DO THIS: Don't trust in yourself, but God alone.

PRAYER: God, I am afraid even to ask it, but today reveal my corrupt beliefs that I have about life and also You.
