Sometimes we run into people who have to have the last word. I've had students and co-workers like that and I'm sure I've been guilty of such behavior, too. When we keep pushing forward or keep talking without thinking, we keep digging ourselves a bigger hole. We don't see the damage we are doing to our cause or the consequences we may face.
Instead of moving recklessly forward, we should take notice of the situation and possible dangers that we face. We can take time to talk to God and seek His refuge. While we are in the refuge of God, we can listen to His guidance and know how to proceed. We can emerge with God's armor on and God by our side, then we can move forward with confidence!
Take a look around, take refuge in God, and follow God's direction to move forward with confidence!
Thank You for loving me and for giving me refuge. Continue to guide me and give me confidence in Your plan. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
