“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.” Proverbs 3:5-7
Pride and desire to do our own thing stand in a way as we are lerning to rely on God. We are trying to do things our way. Stubbornly we keep on moving, even if there was a wall in front of us. Enevidably we have to learn a lesson. How many times I thought I had enough experience, wisdom, knowledge, strength or perseverance to have a job done! Only to learn that all of the above is not enough if I do not raquire of God’s will first.
“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.” Psalm 37:5-6
