Follow My Guidance. Be cautious to venture on your own as a child fears to leave its mother’s side. Doubt of your own wisdom, and reliance on Mine, will teach you humility,

Humility is not the belittling of the self. It is forgetting the self. Nay more, forgetting the self, because your are remembering Me.

You must not expect to live in a world where all is harmony. You must not expect to live where others are in unbroken accord with you. It is your task to maintain your won heart peace in adverse circumstances. Harmony is always yours when you strain your ear to catch Heaven’s music.

Doubt always your power or wisdom to put things right, as Me to right all as you leave it to Me, and go o your way loving and laughing. I am wisdom. Only My wisdom can rightly decide anything – settle any problem. So rely on Me. All is well.

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.  1 Peter 5:6

What this says to me is that what you think you know and understand about your surroundings; that’s as far as your going to get. What you see and try to fix with your own strength, is not fixing it properly. But more like putting duct tape over the situation with the root problem still remaining underneath.

But God! Using God’s wisdom will get you further than you ever thought you could go. Using God’s strength will not only help you get through the problem or situation but it will fix what needs to be fixed with new, better working parts.

It is not by our strength, knowledge, wisdom, pride, that we make things happen. That’s the illusion the enemy wants us to see. It’s only by the Lord Jesus Christ; that anything we have, do, see, taste, touch, hear, accomplish; that gives it purpose.  Have a blessed week!
