Bow down to God.. Don't think you can stand on your own

And Can It Be.. 
That I should Gain an interest in the savior's blood!

Why is it we have such a hard time trusting God?
Why is it we turn to ourselves when the going gets tough?

We know that everything we have ever done on our own has been nothing but sinful and hurting others..

Why is it we still want to rely on our own ways..

1My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
 2For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
 3Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
 4So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
 5Trust in theLord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
 6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
 7Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
 8It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
 9Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
 10So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. Proverbs 3:1-10

Why do we think we can do things to bring peace, favor with God and Man, have direction to our path's and health...

Isn't it God alone who makes a man great?

Or have we American Christians forgotten that it isn't us who pull ourselves up by our own boot straps and that we can't bring ourselves into a place of Greatness.

It is God who makes kings and nations rise and fall..
How much more our own lives?

We all.. Myself included have become too big for our proverbial britches!
