I can’t do this!
Ever felt like you simply cannot do something God has called you to do? Like it is way too hard? Even downright impossible?
Are you feeling that way right now?
Well, I have good news for you. It is not a bad thing to feel this way. It is actually a good thing!
We are NOT supposed to trust in ourselves! We are supposed to TRUST IN GOD!
We are NOT supposed to be able to do God’s will without God! We are supposed to do God’s will THROUGH God!
We are not supposed to bear fruit for the Lord apart from Jesus! We are supposed to bear fruit for the Lord as we ABIDE IN JESUS! In other words, as we believe in the Lord, trust in the Lord, look to the Lord, pray to the Lord, rest in the Lord, hope in the Lord, put our expectation in the Lord, praise and worship the Lord, have an intimate relationship with the Lord, spend time with the Lord, read and live by the Bible, are filled with and led by the Holy Spirit of God, etc.
It is in OUR WEAKNESS that GOD’S STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT. We are NOT STRONG in our flesh. We FIND STRENGTH IN GOD. He gives us HIS STRENGTH.
So what should we do when feel like, “I can’t do this”?
BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST! TURN TO GOD! BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD! CRY OUT TO GOD! PRAY TO GOD! SEEK GOD AND ALL HE HAS FOR US! READ THE BIBLE! CALL ON THE NAME OF JESUS! CRY OUT, CRY OUT, CRY OUT TO GOD ALMIGHTY IN THE NAME OF JESUS!
What we feel we cannot do in and of ourselves concerning God’s will for us, WE CAN DO THROUGH JESUS!
And ALL that we do should NOT be done in the flesh trusting in ourselves. All we do should be THE WILL OF GOD as we TRUST IN THE LORD! HALLELUJAH!
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 NKJV
“You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Trust in the LORD forever, For in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.” Isaiah 26:3-4 NKJV
“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV
“Thus says the LORD: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD. For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, And shall not see when good comes, But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, In a salt land which is not inhabited. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.” Jeremiah 17:5-8 NKJV
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.” John 15:4-6 NKJV
