God Plans So Much More for us, Than We Do For Ourselves

Bible Verse Psalm 25:3

Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.

Commentary:

It can be so hard to wait on the Lord, part of our fallen nature is the overwhelming desire to take control, to begin working our own plan for the causes we desire most. However that's not the way the Lord works, there really is nowhere in the Bible where it says, "The Lord helps those who help themselves". That is just an old wives' tale, it was a phrase taken out of one of Aesop's Fables about Hercules, it never was in the Bible and it still isn't today.

However it appeals to our sinful nature and provides us a good excuse to do things our own way and in our own time-frame. However when we do this we must be honest and understand, that we short change ourselves. God's not going to violate our freewill or force us to wait on Him. And when we take matters into our own hands, we will never know what God had planned for us that might have been so much more than we planned for ourselves.

Believers Are One in Christ

1st Corinthians 12:11-12, 14
