Pride & Control

Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end. (Proverbs 19:20) 
You’ve heard the expression, “no man is an island.”
Be careful not to get isolated emotionally during the trials of life. 
Feelings seem like facts when we are upset.
When we don’t allow others to give us feedback, our blindspots don’t get called out!
It’s pride to think we always know what to do or no one understands our situation like we can.
Lord, your voice has often come through the people around me. Forgive me for any pride or control that has prevented the help you send. 
Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established. (Proverbs 15:22
When I read this devotion I knew it would hit close to home for many of us. I pray after reading this short but powerful devotion that you are honest with yourself and with God about how much pride and control you have been choosing to hold tightly to. Let go and Let God.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
