At the End Of My Rope!

Weeping loudly, a man cried out to me over the phone, “I’m at the end of my rope!”

“Great!” I replied. “Now you are coming to the beginning of the Lord’s!”

All of us must come to the end of our rope when we are looking for ways to be saved. The Bible clearly states, “There is no other name in heaven or on earth that will save you except My name.” We must come to the end of our rope before we find the Lord’s rope of salvation.

When we are feeling weak and paralyzed by the issues of life, we need to turn to the Lord. Paul reminds that we “can do all things through Christ Who gives us strength.”

Often in life God allows us to come to the end our “ropes” before we are willing to reach out or up to take hold of His. At times, we all want to be more than we are and do more than we can. That’s when He calls us and says, “Come unto me – I can and will help you!”

Prayer: Lord, I have trouble admitting that I can’t do everything by myself. Help me to always remember that my strength is made perfect in my weakness as I call upon You for my needs. In Your Name I pray, Amen.

Scripture for Today: Philippians 4:13
