But other times my phone tries to get ahead of me, and will auto-correct my words to what it thinks I am trying to say. That's when I'm not too fond of this function.
I woke up really early this morning (4:30 to be exact), and the first words on my mind were "auto-correct." The first few lines of this post immediately came to mind so I had to get up and write them down.
How many times do we try to use the auto-correct function with God?
Sometimes I try to auto-correct my course to line up with God's will. I think I know how God is going to move, and I try to orchestrate the situation so everything will work exactly how God wants it... only it's not His plan, but mine. That's when He has to come in and gently correct my steps back to His path.
Other times God has to come in and adjust my thinking. I am so sure I know what God is thinking or how He feels about a situation that I don't even go to Him in prayer; instead, I hide out of fear of shame. I let guilt and self-condemnation keep me from running to my Father because I think I already know how He is going to respond.
The Bible tells that God's love for us will never fail and that He is rich in kindness and grace. The Bible also says that God's ways and thoughts are higher than ours. We can't rely on our thinking to make sense of things or determine how God is going to move. Instead we must rely on the Word of God.
Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105 KJV
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 NIVThe Bible is the only auto-correct feature we need. Stand firm on His Word today.
