Honest Evaluation

Scripture

Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. – Proverbs 3:7 ESV

Observation

We are called to have an honest evaluation of our wisdom and fear the Lord who provides true wisdom. 

Application

“I have this” is a statement of self reliance and effort. No other help is needed.  No other one is called upon.  “I have it taken care of.” This idea goes contrary to our dependence on God’s wisdom and sovereignty. We need to look to God and discover His wisdom and His ways. This turning to the Lord begins with an honest evaluation of our own wisdom and resolve to lean into our Heavenly Father. “I have this only with God’s guidance and help.”

Prayer

Lord I turn to you for wisdom. May I not lean into my own understanding but fully lean into Your wisdom and ways.
