Stop! It’s Not in your Own Strength…

Dearly Beloved,

Hope this missive finds you well.  Beloved, I place heavy emphasis on making a cognizant decision on being the best you that you can be.  Please don’t misunderstand me. You can’t approach or do anything simply on “will power” or in your own strength.  Failure, insanity, and repeated cycles will find you and carry you around the same mountain over and over again if you are not careful.

How do you and I extinguish failure, insanity, repeated cycles, etc.?  We have to humble ourselves, and realize that apart from God we can’t do anything.  Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5, (NLT)  Beloved, team up with God and awesome things can happen.  Will you make mistakes? Yes.  Will you miss the mark? Yes.  Will you return back to what you keep promising God that you will stop doing? Yes, until you ask Jesus to help you.  The more you expose your total self to Him, the more comfortable you will become and desire to only please Him in all things.

Friends, call on JESUS at any time.  Don’t pick Him up and put Him down at your convenience.  All of us have God-given dreams, and visions that only He can help us manifest.  If it’s not larger than what you can do now, it’s not from HIM!  So the next time you think it’s all about you, think again.   STOP and realize that’s it’s not in your own strength that you are able to overcome. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Phillipians 4:13, (NLT)  Until we meet again warriors….I love you to life!
