Read Full Devotional from Wisdom from the Psalms at One Place
To turn my will out to pasture, the most difficult thing! Even with a heart's desire to do so, how strong is the pull from the will. Yet, without Him we are nothing...
"Let's face it: We need guidance. Our willfulness gets us into trouble when we refuse to unite it with common sense. Our Lord is the author of good sense and levelheadedness. It only makes sense that we should turn our lives over to Him. He is faithful to guide and direct us. He teaches and nurtures us, enabling us to be the best that we can be.
"Prayer: Break my willful pride, O Lord, and let me recognize my limitations. Nee ding guidance is not weakness. Help me to see the strength which can only come from depending on You. Amen."
9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you.
