Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.

So many times I try to fix problems or figure things out when I should be still and listen for God’s wisdom to come into mind.

I don’t believe this verse advocates just sitting around and waiting for something to happen, but rather as we judge a situation/idea/opportunity/… we should not make sense of it merely from our understanding. We should use God’s wisdom in His word as the ruler (consider both meaning or ruler… ruler = someone with authority, ruler = measuring stick… but the latter is apropos).  Taking this idea a step further, as we pray, surround ourselves with Godly counsel, and consume God’s wisdom from his Word, we can better fulfill the calling of this verse.
