Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Being independent is satans trick to get us to plunge ourselves into painful failures and distance ourselves from Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah
In my infancy in Jehovahs family it was exceedingly difficult to trust in Jehovah and leave it in His hands. It is inherent in the fleshly family to be fiercely independent, which of course leads to many unnecessary disasters and hard times. It took many years and suffering to finally surrender it all to Him.
Even now, even though I know this is the right thing to do , sometimes it takes great battles to surrender my will to His.
There is great battle, which the weapons of Christ is memorizing Bible verses and intense prayer. These are guaranteed to bring victory to the soul, mind and spirit of every Christian.
When You give your problem unto Jehovah, leave it in His hands. Trust Him that He will do what is right, not what you want.
There is no sense in asking Him for His advice if you insist on not waiting for Him but going out and doing what you think is right. That always leads to disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah
The other problem with depending upon yourself is that it lulls you into the false sense of security in your own intellect and physical prowess. This causes us to refuse to include Jehovah in our daily living. This only leads to catastrophe.
Self achievement brings a false sense of assurance that somehow we can live a pure life in our own ability. This attitude ultimately leads us to cut ourselves off from the heart of God and, in turn, to deny our true identity in Christ.” David Edwards
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with sending me The Holy Spirit Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) to help guide me along the trail of life You have chosen for me to travel. May it always glorify Your name and help guide others along the path You have chosen for them to travel. I praise You in the name of He who obeyed You all the way to the path that lead to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day along the path He has chosen for you to walk with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
