Bible Verse for Today
“I know, LORD, that our lives are not our own. We are not able to plan our own course.” (Jeremiah 10:23)

For instance, why has he been unable to conquer and subdue his environment or master himself? A man’s inability to control himself is responsible for the suffering coming upon him. The man has been unable to build what can help him conquer sin and the devil himself. Man can control the things around him but not lust, temper, greed, the tongue, and even the heart.
How can we say that he has gotten all the power to control the world and conquer the impossibilities? When we humble ourselves before the Lord, we can tap into the incredible power to control ourselves and the factors that cause suffering.
We are weak, so we need to turn to God to help us in our weakness.
