Don’t trust your opinion… trust the Word!
“Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.” Proverbs 28:26 ESV
So many opinions. Everyone has at least one. There are so many platforms to voice those opinions. We live in a day where opinions are literally out of control. We are taught that every opinion matters.
We are taught that opinions contradicting God’s Word are valid and equal to the unshakable principles of God’s Word. Wrong!
Our minds have a sneaky way of convincing us of all sort of foolish things. The writer of Proverbs is warning us.
Listening to yourself for too long will lead to misery and failure. Listening to godly counsel from the Word of God will lead to fulfillment and abundance.
Wisdom is not something we are born with. In fact, quite the opposite. We are born with wrong thinking in every area.
Our default mode is completely corrupted by the sin nature. Only by complete immersion in God’s Word (His Wisdom) can we fight back the wrong opinions in our mind and embrace the eternal truth given to us by God.
Takeaway: Have you put too much stock in your own opinion? Have you allowed your perspective to eclipse the truth of God’s Word? Have you allowed others who see things your way to convince you of being “right” instead of examining things through the filter of God’s Word? Let’s all be careful today that we look to Scripture for truth and not the approval of others or the popular opinions of the celebrated.
