Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.    (Proverbs 3:5,6)

The Dhinakarans My dear friends,
As young people, we often ask God to give us specifics— where to work, where to live, whom to marry, etc. God allows us to make choices, and, if we yield to Him, He directs our path.

Once a young guy wrote a letter to me asking, “My friend was in love with a girl who left him and married another boy and so his mind and heart is filled with so much of grief and sorrow. What words of comfort do you have for him?” Apparently, this kind of problem cannot be taken lightly. It would have really filled that person’s heart with so much of grief and would have never let him come out if it. He would have built alot of dreams for his married life. My friends, if we allow these kind of thoughts in our hearts, it becomes dangerous for us and will destroy our future. Some people may also commit suicide if they do not get their loved one as their life partner.

As young children, we need to be more careful with our thoughts and actions and we should draw closer to God. Our Almighty God loves His children so much and He has a great plan for each one of our lives. We can read this in Genesis 2:18, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." It is the desire of God to give you the best life partner and build your life.

Never assume your decisions and choices are always according to God’s will. We read about a man called Saul who did things which were not according to God’s will. (1 Samuel Chapter 15). When God gives His will in our life, it is only for your good. Even my grandfather Dr.D.G.S.Dhinakaran used to say that God does not force Himself on anyone but instead He shows us His will, the way He has for us and allows us to make a decision through our complete submission.

You may have gone far from the will of God by your own decisions. You may ask yourself “what is God’s will for your life”? Will He still lead me? Yes my friend, He will surely lead you. If you submit your life in the hands of God, He will make all things new. Never lean on your own understanding but trust in the Lord completely. This is what we read in Proverbs 3:5,6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” Then the Lord will surely fulfil His perfect will in your life and make your life more beautiful!

Dear loving Lord Jesus, I know that You are present before me as the Light of the world. I cast all my worries and cares under Your feet. I confess all my sins. Deliver me from the power of darkness. Fill me with Your mighty presence and draw me closer to You. Change my life completely and grant me a new life. Thank You Lord. Amen.
