Psalm 20:7 “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the Name of the Lord our God.”

An ever-present danger for Christians today is self-reliance. It can quietly and insidiously creep into our life as God uses us more and more. How? We start to put our confidence in ourselves and our abilities and talents rather than acknowledging that it is God, not us, that is accomplishing it. Pride and boasting gives way to a false sense of hope and self-sufficiency…that sadly always has disastrous results. We need then to remain humble and fully reliant on God and His divine power…for only He is trustworthy to deliver us from all obstacles that come our way…something of which we should readily admit we’re completely incapable of doing for ourselves.
