God is looking for people through whom He can do the impossible. What a pity we plan only the things we can do by ourselves. -AW Tozer
Today, I read this quote and cringed. Most days, I am the person he is talking about. The one who plans only the things I can do by myself. It’s interesting how we do that. We say, “I believe that God will provide for me…now, what do I need to do in order to get there?”
I’m always asking myself what I should be doing about a certain situation, even if I’ve “given” it to God. I’ve been taught to work hard for everything I have, however, sometimes, I think I need to apply that to my spiritual life as well. So wrong. God made the entire universe. I’m not even letting Him show me that He will provide for me.
In the end, I end up driving myself crazy, exhausted, and thinking that I still have to solve all of my problems myself. Meanwhile, the Lord is saying “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28)
Today, I urge you to give up on having a plan that only you can accomplish and take part in the plan that only He can accomplish.
