He is not going to take you to something you can do on your own

I’m not sure who this post is written for, but I feel a strong urging to share this. This is the second post that Sow the Word has posted tonight. The bible teaches in Psalm 46:1 that God is a very present help in the time of trouble. God is our helper. He sent Jesus who put on flesh – He was the Word made flesh, and the Word will do the work in our lives. So what happens when you come against something that you can’t handle. There will be challenges that challenge your intellect and ability. There are things you just can’t do and God is going to lead you to those things that you cannot do without Him. If you could do it without Him, you wouldn’t need God. God wants you to trust Him and turn your situation over to Him so that He can work on your behalf. You see, God can’t operate in the earth unless you give Him authority to do so. We talked about this in a previous post, but God can’t move unless invited because man (Adam) separated us from God. God can only work on the behalf of those of us who have accepted the finished work of Jesus. Now, let’s look at an example of this. When Moses was leading the children of Israel out from captivity with Pharaoh they came the Red Sea.  (See Exodus 14) There was no physical way they could handle crossing that body of water and Pharaoh’s army was behind them. God brought them to a challenge that they could not overcome without Him. So you have to let go and realize that you can’t do it without God. When you realize that and trust Him, He will move on your behalf. Let go and let God and take confidence in knowing that when you can’t do it, God can do it.  He took you to that place so that you can be victorious and He can get the glory, not you.
