Don’t rely on your wisdom, acknowledge and understanding! Hang on to Jesus’ word and His power (1Corinthians 2.4,5; 4.19,20):

  • “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear Jehovah and depart from evil. Healing shall be to your navel and marrow to your bones.” (Proverbs 3.7,8).

Have you ever gone over the episode of the Red Sea? Try to fancy if Moses trusted only on his ken. Certainly, he would mull over how to procure wood, nails, tools, etc. in that desert in order to construct many ships. Pore on how much time, effort and resources would be necessary. Until they come by all this, the pharaoh would have squashed them.

Nevertheless, with a single piece of wood Moses, not only was able to cross the Red Sea, but got annihilate the foes (he wouldn’t have got this if he didn’t have hung on to Jesus and depart from his evil ways).

In the case of Deborah and Barak. While all Israel verged on what their eyes saw, they stay in Jabin’s serfdom for the sake of his nine hundred chariots of iron (Judge 4.3). When they feared the Creator and depart from evil, these chariots that Israel’s people looked on so dire became the prison of the Jabin’s army (Judges 5.21,22).

Avert the evil in virtue of your awe of sadden the Creator and you will find strengthening for your bones and heal for your wounds.

Have a blessing day in Christ Jesus without cramping His power.
