KEEPING YOUR SELF CONFIDENCE IN CHECK

BLOG POST #41

Is it His Will?

Feeling great about yourself is one of those feelings everyone wants to experience on a day to day basis. We go from feeling good about ourselves, to feeling good about what we do, to feeling good about what we know. Feeling good about what you know can be a dangerous place to be, because... do you really know?

The Bible warns us of what we know or what we think we know. James 5:13-15, Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—its here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “if the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.”

Everything we do we must ask of God, and understand that if it is His Will then it will happen. Trusting in ourselves is fool’s gold, but trusting in the Lord is authentic.
