Psalm 44:5 Through thee will we push down our enemies: Through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us. 6 For I will not trust in my bow, Neither shall my sword save me.
The biggest temptation I have is to think that I can do something. I want to think that my training, my studies, my natural abilities can do whatever I need to do. Now I know better in my head but I often get so busy that in reality I am living like I can do all things in who I am.
If I want to have true success in salvation, in life, and really in anything I need to learn that the Lord is the only one that can accomplish that in my life. It is Jesus who died for me to live. It is Jesus who makes it possible for my life to count for something worth while.
When difficulties arise I want to go to the Lord first and not after it is all over. I want to be seeking Him in everything and with all my heart.
