He takes no pleasure in the strength of a horse or in human might. No, the Lord’s delight is in those who fear him, those who put their hope in his unfailing love. -Psalms 147:10‭-‬11 NLT

There are people who are trying to be successful using their own skills, intelligence, and might. They’re not seeking God. They’re doing whatever needs to be done in their own strength.

Based on scripture, it doesn’t please God when we try to do anything ourselves. God wants us to totally depend on Him. When a situation arises, God wants us to rely on Him throughout that situation.

The situation doesn’t have to be negative for us to seek Him. We may have two house or job options. Instead of relying on logic, let’s seek His advice. He simply wants us to rely on Him.

Yes, we’re smart, strong, gifted, and talented, but let’s rely on God instead of ourselves.
