Commentary from Pastor Michael White:  

In his self-sufficiency he will be in distress; every hand of misery will come against him. – Job 20:22

You have a choice: will you rely on yourself, or on God? The fruit of self-sufficiency is distress; but the fruit of reliance on God is success!

Self-sufficiency doesn’t lead to peace; it leads to distress. Why waste time and energy trying to secure and protect your own future? Why not let God establish your life, instead of trying to establish it on your own?

Prayer:

Father, help me to rely on You more than ever before! I want to trust You with all of my heart, and I want to serve You with all of my life, in Jesus’ name!
