“Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.”
Each day we have choices to make in our walk with the Lord.
Mary and Martha, the sisters of Lazarus, show us how we must choose even our method of service to the Lord. Both had good intentions and the desire to serve, but Jesus spoke of the difference between them.
“And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
Martha chose to serve the Lord in her own understanding, while Mary chose to sit at His feet to heard His Word.
“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
These popular verse are within the context of blessings that are available when we choose to make the Word of God a priority. Trusting in the Lord is to trust in His Word. Rather than leaning on our own understanding, we can choose to find understanding through His Word.
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we must choose His Word each day of our lives.
