“Every man’s ways are right in his own eyes, but in the end they lead to death.” (1)…Holy scriptures say.
I was taught to question my ways, to be sure they are right in God’s eyes and not my own,
to align myself with the will, way and spirit of YHVH.
God tells us, “My ways are not your ways and my thoughts are not your thoughts…
as the heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than yours.” (2)
Although I know questioning our ways is beneficial, there is a greater importance to be found.
I realized recently much more than questioning is the importance of accepting, believing and standing firmly and confidently in the answer!
A precarious peace is found in this place!
precarious 1646, a legal word, “held through the favor of another,” from L. precarius “obtained by asking or praying,” from prex (gen. precis) “entreaty, prayer.” Notion of “dependent on the will of another” led to sense “risky, dangerous, uncertain” (1687).
