The Lord versus Your Own Understanding

Acts 27

v11

Nevertheless the centurion believed the master and the owner of the ship, more than those things which were spoken by Paul.
v21
But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss.

We should listen and do what the Lord wants, even when it's contrary to what makes sense to us.

Proverbs 3:5-8

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
