For many years I thought that I was capable of accomplishing the work that only God can do. I believed that all I needed to do was discover certain formulas, follow successful role models, set the right goals and develop the right methods to produce the results He wanted from me.
Now I realize that there is nothing I can do, contrive, improvise or achieve in my own strength.
I can imitate and pretend some things but I am only deceiving myself. It is all an illusion.
I am absolutely dependent on Him for everything. His strength is made perfect in my weakness.
I am powerless and incapable of doing anything without Him. I thank God for the privilege and freedom He has given me to walk with Him and abide in Christ.
I pray that He will always keep me mindful of how needful I am of His mercy and grace to be the person He wants me to be.
