God has to destroy our determined confidence in our own convictions. We say, “I know that this is what I should do”-and suddenly the voice of God speaks in a way that overwhelms us by revealing the depths of our ignorance. We show our ignorance of Him in the very way we decide to serve Him….Is that anything like the spirit of our Lord— “I delight to do Your will, O my God …” (Psalm 40:8).
