Who is Directing Your Life?
It is hard for us to realize that we don't have the ability to run our own lives and have them turn out well. Coming into this realization usually requires that we make mistakes and find out the hard way, that we need to humble ourselves under God's mighty hand and ask for His help and guidance in all things. If things are not going well in your life, perhaps it is because you are making your own plans and expecting God to bless them. I certainly wasted many years doing that, but I've learned to ask for God's help and to acknowledge Him in all of my ways.
Humble people do not think more highly of themselves than they ought to, and they fully realize that even on their best day, they still need God's wisdom concerning any decision or. plans that they make. ~ Joyce Meyers
