Sometimes, that’s what you need– to come to the end of your proverbial rope. Sometimes, you need to reach the limit of your self-sufficiency and your own way of doing things and realize your ever-present need for God.
There is great freedom in saying, “I can’t but You can.”
There is power in confessing your weakness, resting in God’s promise that when we are weakest is when His strength is perfected in us.
For those times when you don’t see how you can manage one more minute, you find that you are able, not through any effort or ability of your own. You find God is able to sustain and carry you.
May this be the day we boast in our weakness and run to God as a little children run to their parents with their need and trust.
May this be the day of our Declaration of Dependence.
