Isaiah 10:15 Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth therewith? or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shaketh it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood.
Let us ever be aware of the fact that we are only instruments in His hands. If anything is accomplished in our lives it is He that does it. Sometimes when things are going good we want to think of how great we are and how greatly used we are but when things aren’t going well we complain that God isn’t being fair with us. Let us humble ourselves and remember that we are but His tools and then humbly allow ourselves to be eagerly used of Him.
So often I want to take credit for what He has done. I want to act as though I am something important but it is the Lord.
I also have the problem of blaming myself if God isn’t ready to work. I have a very difficult time just resting in Him and knowing that He is God and there is no other!
