How often do we try to make things happen on our own? Maybe we have the skills, knowledge and training to do something so we think we “should” be able to handle it by ourselves. Maybe we feel a little guilt because we think we “should” know what to do, or how to do something - like be a good parent or spouse - and we don’t want to admit that we are struggling. Maybe we have done it before and have confidence in our ability to “get ‘er done.”
None of these scenarios are foreign to me. I’m guilty of it all. How about you? It’s not even that I go off half-cocked, or do it in a prideful way, I just forget to stay plugged in to God. He is my source of all wisdom so that I can properly apply my knowledge, skills and training. He teaches me the things I don’t know, and stands in the gap when I need help. He helps me stay confident in HIM because He never wavers and no matter how I try, I am human and I waver.
We have a choice, though. We can plug in to God, our divine and never-ending source... or not. #iamthevine #choosegod #godismysource #humbleyourself #faith #notbymystrength #walkinthespirit #shalom #yourjourneytobeingwhole #dailydevotional
