There is no substitute for the word of God

Human thinking has limitations.  That’s why God speaks to us.

If we could solve our problems by thinking hard enough, He would have remained silent so that we could figure things out in silence.  The reason He gave us the Bible is so that we would not be left to the inadequacy our own thoughts.

It is better to remember and reflect on one sentence of God’s than to think up a hundred sentences of your own.

For this reason we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.
–  Hebrews 2:1

When my anxious thoughts multiply within me,
Your consolations delight my soul.
–  Psalm 94:19

The Bible is full of His “consolations.”  Why not find one and meditate on it?  You might be surprised to learn how much more wise and comforting are His thoughts than your own.
