Devotions from Judy’s heart

The other day I played a lengthily game of Scrabble with 2 of our grandsons. It was down to the last few letters and one grandson was prancing around thinking he won by 20 points, since his brother had only 1 letter left. I told him to be humble and not to celebrate before the time.  What do you suppose happened? His brother played his last letter on a double word and they ended up in a tie. That was a disappointment for the one who was leading. Sometimes we think we know how things will turn out and then God does a “fast one” on us. He humbles us to let us know that we are not in control and don’t know how things will turn out in the end.  In Prov. 16:18 it says that “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”  We don’t know everything but “God is greater than our hearts and knows everything.” ( I John 3:20). Let us listen to His Spirit’s leading and not jump to conclusions that we know!
