You start figuring out flawed ways to save yourself!
You don’t ask God for His provision and protection. Instead, you look at your credit cards to see how you can borrow. Maybe you can make it work, but it’s going to push things to the limit.
Your loved one gets into trouble and you begin to strategize how to get them out. You get pneumonia and then your water heater breaks in the middle of the night, and mold starts to grow in your basement. What if your insurance company drops you!? More and more things are added to your growing list of worries.
You try to be your own Savior!»
