Believing In ???
Everywhere we look, we find articles about how important it is to believe in yourself. I think the reason this is so hard is that we KNOW ourselves and we know our weaknesses and shortcomings. The other reason - god didn’t set things up that way. He tells us to believe in HIM and His goodness. He promises to work in and through us by His own power, not ours.
“for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13
We are supposed to put our faith in God, not ourselves - that’s why that never works. Will power is another one of those things - some of us do have strong wills, but they will still be inconsistent because of our humanity. We are to get our strength from the Lord, because He will never fail. Think about the way you think today... #faithingod #justdoit #discipleship #followerofchrist #BEthechurch #humility #childofgod #goodgoodfather #shalom #dailydevotional
