We can be pretty determined in life to get things done. But sometimes our determination can be an attempt to control our lives. I know for myself, there are times I barrel ahead thinking I’ve got this, but I should have stopped to consult with God first. God has given us gifts and abilities to get stuff done, but we still need to submit to his plans and purposes for our lives. We need to make it a regular habit to ask God for wisdom and learn to listen carefully to his voice to discern how to proceed.
