Think You Know Better Than God?


May I please ask you a question? Please don’t answer too quickly. If you examine your heart and life, I believe you will find the answer to be YES. I believe if we are ALL honest with ourselves, we will see we ALL have fallen prey to this at times.

Think you know better than God?

When we question God, debate with Him, doubt God, resist God, rebel against God, get angry at God, prefer our plans to God’s will, do things our way not God’s way, look to the world instead of to God and the Bible, live for self instead of for the Lord Jesus Christ, distance ourselves from God, come up with our own plans and purposes, etc., we are in essence believing we know better than the Lord.

Pride is abominable to the Lord. It is sin. It grieves God’s heart. Feeling, thinking, speaking, and/or acting in such a way that we puff ourselves up as knowing better than God WHETHER CONSCIOUSLY OR NOT is ALL sin – ALL of which needs to be gotten rid of!

God not only knows BETTER than we do! God ALWAYS knows best!

Let us strive daily to get our thoughts, words, and actions in line with THE TRUTH!

“Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the spoil with the proud. He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he.” Proverbs 16:18-20 NKJV
