Yield to Yah in even the smallest of matters. Be not wise in your own eyes.

View Transcript

Shalom, and happy morning to you. All throughout time, and even today, many have thought themselves wise in their own eyes. When a man or woman accomplishes something they feel is monumental, pride immediately swells in their hearts and they pat themselves on the back for their perceived achievement. But quite often, the things we set out to do and accomplish in this world are beset with evil. Many of our primary motivations are selfish or misguided, and Yah and his plans and ways are scarcely in the equation.

How many of us truly consider Yah’s perfect law and consult him before making the least decision in a matter and striking out on a new path? This should be our daily practice, a conduct that is as ingrained in us as breathing, but the problem is, a lot of people—including his servants—are too wise in their own eyes to yield to the Most High and consult him for direction. That is the stubborn streak that has plagued Israel for thousands of years, and it continues to be the case today. But Scripture cautions you to:

7 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear Yah, and turn away from evil. 8 It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.

—Proverbs 3:7 – 8
