So often the world says we can’t do this or we shouldn’t do that, and if we try, it has to be a blood bath competition.
The Bible says, softly, we can do all things. But we do these things through Christ, who will give us strength.
When we focus on the Father-Son-Spirit Trinity, our souls learn to recognize that while we can do all things, it’s not always advisable. With true faith the size of a mustard seed, we can move mountains. We can do what we once thought impossible.
His strength can also come to us as we don’t do something. His strength can refrain us from losing our tempers, feeling negative, or reacting badly. His strength in us is welcome to transform us into being the person He created us to be. Even at times when we believe we are creatures of habit, that we can’t change, that we’re no good. Or the times we feel stuck, unguided or misdirected.
When we’re not sure we have anything to offer, we can offer ourselves to Him, and let Him lead us.
When we step away from what we think or feel, and give God room to do what we don’t understand, things happen. When we tell God, “I don’t know, but you do,” and take our hands out of the mix, He has more room to do inconceivably more than we could have imagined.
This week I challenge you to not be led by “stinking thinking” but instead pause and let God show you what He can do on your behalf. Will you let Him?
