Stop Trusting In Yourself
“My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments.” Proverbs 3:1
You know you want to be in charge, but the truth is you’re not. This reality is difficult for a man to embrace. At times sheer strength will try to persuade you to believe in the might of your ingenuity - and this is what it means to “forget.” But your identity is that of a “son,” not a father. Never forget you ’ll always be a child first. But where and why do you “keep” this remembrance? Not only with your mental facilities but with your “heart.” It’s deep within you that you must “keep the commandments” of your father. And with this, you be led down a straight path for all your days.
DO THIS: Refuse to trust in yourself, unless you have hidden his commandments in your heart.
PRAYER: God, help me to be strong enough to trust in you and extend faith to you as my loving father who wants the best for me.
