We think we are self-sufficient, that we can handle everything.
We go wrong in so many areas in our lives because we try to handle our affairs ourselves. And when we do that, we are saying, “God, I got this”. But we really don’t. We all give some things to God, and handle the rest ourselves.
Leaving God out is a sure thing for disaster, either now or later. Give it all to God in prayer, and let him show you the way to go. He knows all, He sees all. He is the way, the truth, and the life. You can’t go wrong with God. Do it His way, not yours.
II Corinthians 3:5 (KJV) – not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God.
Philippians 4:6 (KJV) – be careful for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
John 14:6 (KJV) – Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: Norman cometh unto the Father, but by me.
