Numbers 9:8 ERV “Moses said to them, “I will ask the Lord what he says about this.”
Scientists say that the average person makes thousands upon thousands of decisions every day, voluntarily and involuntarily. But how many of those decisions are taken after consulting God?
Proverbs 3:5-7 ERV says “Trust the Lord completely, and don’t depend on your own knowledge. With every step you take, think about what he wants, and he will help you go the right way. Don’t trust in your own wisdom, but fear and respect the Lord and stay away from evil.”
So why go to school? What’s the essence of having so many degrees and attending seminars if we’re to trust in God completely? Is God really interested in every detail of our lives? God wants us to acknowledge Him; and while it is good to acquire knowledge, we must understand the limitations of all human knowledge: we honour God by seeking His opinions.
