Ever feel like Job...........utterly helpless and without hope? Maybe its because of a hurt you have experienced or a habit you can't overcome. Maybe you just feel hung-up on a situation in your life and you can't 'think' or 'maneuver' your way out of it. Well........join the club! We all have one or all of those going at any given time in our lives. I sure do!
What to do? What to do?
There is One with all power who can help us but first we have to admit we aren't 'the power' in our own lives. Getting powerless isn't something you wake up one morning and decide you are going to do that day. I think of it more like the air going out of a balloon. Sometimes it goes out in a slow leak.............other times it just rushes out with a lot of noise, flying all over the place. But once it is empty it can be filled up again.
When we are absolutely empty..............that's the time when God fills us up with HIS power to overcome those hurts, habits and hang-ups that we are unable to fix in our own limited and inadequate power and wisdom..............and all glory will go to Him!
"Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.." Ephesians 3:20
