Jeremiah 17:5 ” Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord.”

II Corinthians 1:9 warns us directly to not rely on ourselves but on God. But human pride and our selfish egos often pull us the opposite direction. Even though this Scripture tells us quite bluntly what will happen if we rely on any other type of security other than God..(we will be cursed)…we often times continue to resist Him. For anytime we depart from God’s Will in our life and put our confidence in ourselves, we’ll find obstacles at every turn, and the folly that’ll ensue will only show our true weakness, in contrast to the power of God.
