God is God, and I am not.

Songwriter Stephen Curtiss Chapman penned those familiar words and added: “I can only see a part of the picture he’s painting.” Many have made that same observation, and one added that “Humility is simply accepting that fact.” Too often we live as if we are in control and can make the best decisions. With our limited knowledge, it’s best to rely on the true source of wisdom.

Be still, and know that I am God! . . . Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom. (Psalm 46:10; 111:10)
