What is a gut feeling? I had a gut feeling one time on Halloween when I nearly ate the entirety of the candy I acquired. But that isn't what is meant by a gut feeling. We all make countless decisions each day. We use everything from facts and empiricism to intuition and a "gut feeling". Common sense is also a go to for many. Unfortunately, most things that make sense aren't necessarily correct. When we find ourselves in a swell in a river, attempting to swim out will only result in us fighting the current and it will end up in our demise. Going limp makes NO SENSE but that allows the current to kick us out to safety. We believe that we are smart and we are, but God is smarter.
Lord, help me to use wisdom more than knowledge and the most wise thing I can do is to trust You.
