Greater Than: God > me

It can be difficult for us to admit that someone is better than we are at something. It requires humility as well as an honest sense of awareness. When we are confronted with our own limitations and recognize someones superiority, our response is not always positive. We tend to shut down or foolishly insist on pushing forward with less than satisfactory results.

I think it's the same reason we struggle in a genuine relationship with God. We have to readily admit that He is greater than we are. I think we know it, but we act as if we can manage our lives on our own just fine. How much better off would we be if we would realize that God is greater than we are and allow Him to actively work in our lives? This confession is the first step to God's majestic work being unleashed in us.
