II Corthinians 4:7(KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Most of us tend to think too highly of ourselves. Our love for having the right answers, solving our own problems, and feeling in control of every aspect of our lives demonstrates our inclination to think we possess personal security. However, it’s a false sense of security connected to this self-sufficiency problem we are all prone to embracing.

Our reliance has to always begin and end with the Lord our God. We must pay close attention to ourselves, so we are careful to not malfunction as we journey in our destiny.  How do we understand ourselves in the manner that connects us to God in an increasing way. We must always seek the security that comes from the Lord which supersedes self-security that leads us away from the Lord!

Point to ponder- Our sufficiency has to be grounded and rooted in the Lord our God. Be careful of self-sufficiency that causes us to displace the Lord in our lives!
