Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
How foolish and prideful we can become when we believe that we are so clever. When we cease to check with God if we are going in the right direction. When we neglect to read His word and seek Him in prayer we often stray from the path of righteousness toward the path of sinfulness. We are in danger when we bristle or scoff at those who would suggest that we have not yielded to God on certain issues. We often falter when we believe that we "know" what we're doing and we have sufficiently read the word of God so we do not need to constantly refer to it.
The Lord will give wisdom to all who ask and He supplied us with His word and His Holy Spirit. He has given us a great cloud of witnesses. We have brothers and sisters in Christ who will stand in the gap in prayer and share God's word with us. He has given us those who have experienced His power, love and deliverance and they share their testimony with us. How often do we miss a blessing, healing and deliverance because we believed we knew best? How often do we get entangled with things outside of God's will because we neglected to seek Him?
