This verse made me think about how many times I get myself in a bind and have nobody to blame but myself. We want so much from the Lord and we expect everything to go our way because we prayed about it. We need to look at what we are doing and ask, does the way we live resemble Christ or are we living to enjoy the world and add Christ as a patch?
In Proverbs 16:2 it says, “People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives.”
We need to truly surrender to the lord and not fight getting our strength from Him and remember to constantly be filling ourselves with God’s word and prayer so we know how to get through all situations. Amen
