“He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” (Ps. 25
We would be so much better off if we just listened to God instead of trying to do things the hard way – our own way. Ego is a tricky thing. It gets in our heads and tells us that we know what to do. What if we were humble and asked God for instruction? What if we listened to God and acted based upon his Word? If we did that, God would show us the way.
This method works where we sincerely believe we know what we are doing (and don’t). It also works where we are struggling. With food. With exercise. With finances. Wherever we struggle, there is a way out. It’s called letting go and letting God. Having our egos yield to the will of God. Try it!
