The term “Lean In” was the title of a recent book by a very prominent CEO. Everyone was abuzz about this term, and it was used very publicly as though it was a new term.
The term actually was first introduced in Proverbs 3:5 which says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Every piece of wisdom that man has ever said was all originally said in the Bible. Ecclesiastes 1:9 &10 says “the thing that has been, it is that which shall be and that which is done is that which shall be done and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there anything whereof it may be said, see, this is new? It hath been already of old time which was before us.”
This passage means that there is nothing you will go through in your life that God doesn’t have the answer for, and there is not one piece of new wisdom that is not already spoken of in the scriptures. I find that reading the Bible is like opening your front door and saying to God, come on in and show me what I ought to do.
You will never surprise God by telling him what you did because he already knows it all, and he knows every aspect of your life down to the number of hairs on your head.
Don’t leave him out of your decisions because he is the best counselor, financier, lawyer, advocate, father and the very dearest friend you could ever have. He knows everything about you, and he still loves everything about you. KT
