I know, LORD, that our lives are not our own.
We are not able to plan our own course.
So correct me, LORD, but please be gentle.
Do not correct me in anger, for I would die.
— Jeremiah 10:23-24 NLT
Jeremiah, as he states in the verse above, knows God and what His abilities are. Jeremiah seeks wisdom and guidance from the one true source that is above all others.
God’s ability to direct our lives well is infinitely beyond our ability. Sometimes we are afraid of God’s power and God’s plans because we know his power would easily crush us if he used it against us.
Don’t be afraid to let God correct your plans. He will give you wisdom if you are willing.
