Proverbs 3:7-8 (NIV)
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. 8 This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.
*There are times when we have tried to do, say, or advise others without consulting with God first. As humans, we often allow worldly logic to outweigh spiritual guidance, we assume, we rationalize, and we are so quick to give advice without including God in the conversation or scenario. Think about it: How many times have you made decisions based on what you know, what you assume, or past experiences without experiencing what God is trying to tell you? What's even sadder is how we try to force this way of doing and thinking on someone else without even considering the way God wants you to present things. Thus, creating a cycle God never intended that you are now responsible for. Some of us have probably even went through the extreme of cutting people off or taking a step back before you have a conversation with God. Let's work on assuming less, and listening to the Father more; rid yourself of your own wisdom, and embrace His; and lastly practice revamping your thinking to connect with your spirit rather then lean on your own understanding of what's logical.
