Your daily dose of Proverbs:
"A good man obtains favor from the Lord,
but the Lord condemns a crafty man” - 12:2.
God favors those who put their trust in Him, but opposes those who trust their own abilities. In the long-run, God can do much for you than you can for yourself, but you must trust Him. Why not let go of your own efforts to promote your best interests and do things God's way? Read 1 Chronicles 5:18-20 and 1 Samuel 17:47 to see how God helped those who understood how to let him fight for them in their battles.
