Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'”
Have you found yourself in a place where you knew you needed to do something but you couldn’t find the strength to do it?
Jesus looked at his disciples when they were afraid wondering who can enter heaven if it was so difficult to obey God’s commands. He said, if you’re going to rely on your own strength and ability, there’s no way you can make it. But God can make the impossible possible when it is He Who works in you, when It is He Who gives you the ability to do what is humanly impossible.
God doesn’t want us to try to impress Him with what we can do in our strength. He doesn’t want us to live the Christian life relying on our ability to obey to live a righteous life. He wants us to be humble enough to ask Him for His ability to work in us, that’s why He gave us His grace – to empower us to live a life that pleases Him. When you’re struggling to obey, to forgive, or to be generous, or to let go of someone toxic, or to spend time in His Presence… whatever it may be, It is His desire that you get Him involved in that struggle. Ask Him for the grace and trust Him to get you through it.
“Abba, I cannot live my life without You. You are my Strength, my Rock, my Light, my Peace. You are the One Who empowers me to live victoriously every single day. You are the One Who picks me up when I fall. Thank You for the calling and destiny You have placed on my life before I was even born, giving me purpose. Thank You for Your stubborn love that never lets go of me. Through You, all things are possible for me,I can live a life that glorifies You always. In Jesus’ Name, amen!”
