Relying on God

We were not created to walk through this life under our own power but, as with so many other things, our sinful nature convinces us we not only can but should. We feel as though we know where we are supposed to be going, which way is the best way to get us there, and who should be in on the journey, when in fact we are just guessing. For most of us it takes extreme circumstances, the kind we cannot see a way out of, before we will relinquish a measure of our imaginary control back to the One who has had actual control all along. He lets us wander into these circumstances so that we might learn to depend on God-control more than self-control, to rely fully on Him, as we should do in good times as well as bad.
