Our minds are set to say, “we” have to do things on our own. We can do it ourselves. But the majority don’t realize, we don’t. Our expectations are not to be from ourselves, but from God.
It is not to say that we are not sufficient to do things for ourselves, but it should be from God. We put ourselves on a pedestal, trying to do it all on our own, in our own strength. That is not the way God meant for things to be. God wants us to expect things to come from him, through us, for he is our strength.
It is in our mistakes that we learn that God is our source, who works in us. Therefore, allow God to work in and through you, in His strength and not in your own. Learn through your mistakes, but let your mistakes be few. You will soon see, that God’s grace is sufficient.
II Corinthians 12:9 (KJV) – not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiently is of God.
Psalm 18:2 (KJV) – the Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength , in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
II Corinthians 12:9 (KJV) – and he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
