His chin was resting on his chest and his hands gently folded in his lap. He sat quietly for several moments. Finally he said, “I’m at the end of my rope. I have no idea what to do next or where to go for help.”
“How wonderful,” replied his pastor with optimism in his voice. “Now you are ready for God to take control of your life!”
How blest we are when we finally come to the end of our resources and realize what we have in God!
Need courage? “Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Be not dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and uphold you with my victorious right hand.”
Feel weak? “Now glory be to God! By His power at work within us, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would dare to ask!”
Want guidance? “And we can be confident that He will listen to us whenever we ask Him for anything in line within His will!”
Lack success? “Yet if I live, that means fruitful service for the Lord.”
Lost confidence? “It is better to trust the Lord than to put confidence in people.”
Enduring trials? “God blesses the people who patiently endure testing.”
Seeking rewards? “If we are faithful to the end…we will share in all that belongs to Christ!”
Prayer: Lord, how good it is to know that Your resources far exceed any need we may ever have. Your goodness and grace are beyond measure and always available. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Mark 10:27 But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”
