Are you a know it all? Are you the person in the meeting that doesn’t need vital information that is being discussed because you think you already know what to do? Are you that person who knows everything and everyone else knows nothing? Thinking you know it all is a form of pride. Pride builds a wall of self-built achievements that only you could have done on your own. No help from people and no help from God.
God makes us knowledgeable about many things. God even created for us a beautiful mind so we can learn beyond our set limitations. Even though we are equipped with this mind, there will be times where we need to seek council on certain matters either spiritually, physically or emotionally. When seeking council, we go to hear the person’s perspective on a matter and then we walk away more advanced in the learning of what we came there for. Once we get in our quiet place, we should take everything we learned and sit it on the table of decisions and invite God to sit and give us the solution to the problem. God is such the Father, that He will come to the table, sort out what we need and get rid of what hinders our journey.
If you are a person filled with pride, create a self-less moment and ask God to help you remove your ego so you can become open to Him being your Helper. Be so open to God that you begin to feel the desire to have Him destroy the walls built by pride and rebuild for you a bridge of humility, love and understanding.
Prayer: Lord, there are times when I can be too much for people. Help me to tear down the walls of pride and learn to seek others opinion then bring you what I have learned so you can tell me my next move. Help me to understand that I can’t do everything alone and that it was you that equipped me for the journey and not myself. Amen
Scripture: Without good direction, people lose their way; the more wise counsel you follow, the better your chances. Proverbs 11:14 (MSG)
