Strength of Our Strength

When we commit our ways and works into the hands of God as it says to do in Proverbs 16, we may think first of the works that we feel the least confident about or competent in, so of course we would sense the need for the strength and wisdom of God especially in those things, we reason. But Proverbs isn’t counseling us to commit only those kinds of endeavors but also the kinds which we consider our strengths. It is where we are convinced by our past experience that we know what we are doing and we think we know exactly how to proceed that we could be the most vulnerable. It is there that we are inclined to barge ahead in ways that have worked so well before that we feel no immediate need to depend or rely directly on God. But God wants to be our moment to moment strength in strength as well as in weakness. We will never get so good at something that we become independent of God’s enabling grace in that kind of enterprise. Failure has its own fallout to be sure, but success can be even more devastating than failure, because of the subtle nature of its repercussions in future activity. If we humble ourselves, we won't have to BE humbled.
