Are you smarter than God?
Most of us would never admit it but we do think we’re smarter than God. Don’t believe me? Look at your actions…
He tells us “leave that job, don’t marry that person, make an effort to mend that broken relationship, confess what you did, don’t go there,” and we refuse to do these things because we feel like our plan is better.
In the end most of our plans do not turn out the way we planned. Sometimes we get mad at God because we didn’t listen to Him to begin with.
Solomon one of the wisest man to ever live gave some great advice that sadly he didn’t follow. And if you could ask him now he would tell us not to make the same mistake.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make straight your paths.” –Proverbs 3:5-6
When we lean on our own understanding, we choke out the possibility of God leading us. And wherever He leads is always better.
