We cannot seek God and His will and His blessing according to our own rules or way of doing things. We are not in the driver’s seat. You cannot say to God, I will come this far and no further. You cannot say “God here is what I’m going to do for you today and I’m going to do it the way I want.” There is no good deed, no good act that you can do “for God”. You must come before God on your knees, acknowledging, not your own power, but His. You must humbly place yourself at His service and not your own. You must acknowledge Him in all your ways, and lean not on your own understanding.
