Do you think you need to do it all in your own strength? Are you strong enough or tough enough to do it all on your own? We weren’t made to do it alone. God provided with a helper. If we walk in the power of the Spirit then we can walk in the path of the miraculous and do things that are bigger than anything we could do in our own strength or ability. So put your trust in God and walk in alignment with His will and His purpose for your life. It isn’t because of me that I can do what I do, but by making God’s priorities my priorities and prioritizing my life properly, He is able to take the little that we have and multiply it to meet our needs and accomplish His plan and purpose for our lives. It isn’t by our strength or by our might, but by God’s grace, mercy, and power. We read seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. By putting Him first, God’s Word finishes with the promise that all these things will be added to you. So make God’s priorities your priorities and see what you are able to do and accomplish in His strength. Let’s go beyond trusting in our skills and talents to trusting only God. Ask God to show you how to use the skills and talents He has given you to accomplish His will for His glory. We have the promise in His Word that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Impossible isn’t a word, it is just an excuse not to try. So don’t give up. Don’t think you have to do it all in your own strength. Don’t stop because the enemy is trying to paralyze you with fear. Turn to God! Ask Him for wisdom for He gives it without finding fault. So as we come to the close of the work week let’s stop and take a gut check of where we are at and turn to God for wisdom in what we need to be doing and then allow Him to use the little we have to accomplish the miraculous in and through our lives. We have 2 ears and 1 mouth, so let’s listen more than we speak.
