‘Wisdom To Know My Weaknesses’ (Prov. 26) by @0rode #LAWisdom Devotional

Jan 26 @thelafamily #LAWisdom

Reading: Proverbs 26, Genesis 26

Wisdom To Know My Weaknesses

TEXT: “Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, And he who rolls a stone will have it roll back on him.” Proverbs 26:27 (NKJV)


Our human attitudes will only lead us so far up a path, if we don’t fortify ourselves through the word, and daily communion with the Holy Spirit. The weight of our indiscretions will force us to either fall down the pit or the stone to roll back on us.

From today, let us be mindful of what we permit around us. Do an inventory; some of us feel we are ‘strong enough’ to be in the world but at what cost? Does your ‘strength’ reinforce the non-believer’s attitude to continue in their ways because they see no difference between you and them? Or to the new soul in Christ, does your life weaken their ability to cut ties with sin and find strength in living a life of righteousness?

Pray: Merciful Lord, help me not to stumble through life in my own self-righteousness. I pray that every shovel or stone that presents itself in my life and that of the body of Christ be removed, in the name of Jesus, Amen.
