WE want to get to a place where we are beyond trusting ourselves. There is so much failure in self assurances. It is not bad to have good things on the lines of satisfaction, but we must never have anything on the human plane that we rest upon.
There is only one true place to rest upon, and our trust is in God. In His name we go. In God alone we trust and God brings the victory. When we have no confidence in ourselves to trust in our God, He has promised to be with us at all times, to make the path straight and to make a way. the it is that we can understand like David said "The gentleness has made me great" (2 Sam. 22:36).
Ah, You the lover of our souls! We have no confidence in the flesh. Our confidence can only stand and rely only on the one who is able to come in at the midnight hour, as easily as at noon day and make the night and the day alike to the man that rest completely in the will of God, knowing "That all things work together for good to them that love God and are called according to HIS purpose" and trust Him.
Such Trust have we in Him. The Lord has helped me to have no confidence in myself, but to trust wholly in Him..Bless His Name
