Lean Not On Your Own Understanding

We develop our own understanding of things in almost every sphere of life that we are exposed to through our learning, our experiences, our relationships, through the books we read, and, in fact, through everything that we are surrounded by. And once we have an understanding of things, then we start to depend on what our understanding and experience tells us. We then become wise in our own eyes thinking that we know everything on the concerned issue or subject and we leave very little space for God to help us. The understanding we have and the knowledge we possess many times causes us to be proud and even to look down on others.

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth…(1 Cor 13:4-6)

Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy,That it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.(Is 59 :1-2)
