I mean really now, have we become such a proud independent people that we don’t openly confess our need of God each day of our lives?
Or is it a case of us just not being broken enough to see the need of God in our lives. I can tell you one thing, this human race is made up of some very proud people who think they can do just fine without the help of God in their lives each day.
If you would ask most they would say, yes I need the Lord but their daily living, their actions, their object of faith do not coincide with their confession.
God knew we needed a deliverer and sent His Son Jesus Christ into this world. We not only needed a deliverer from the power of the sin nature but we needed a deliverer for every spiritual, physical, financial, emotional, domestic and social ill of life.
We come to a place, well some do, of seeing we need the Savior, Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and be born again spiritually. But after becoming a believer we find out there are allot of things that are not real Christ like.
It’s not something we should get depressed about but it does show us we are a work in progress. So we see the need of Jesus as the Savior but we go about trying to get progressively sanctified through SELF.
So when there is a spiritual, physical, financial, emotional, domestic or social problem in our lives we try to depend upon our willpower or lean upon our own understanding to bring this sanctification in our lives. It doesn’t work.
I cannot even tell you how many people that I talk to that are trying have all that God wants them to have by trying with their own willpower, intellect, abilities, and talents in this life other than depending upon God and God’s way of getting Grace and the Power of the Holy Spirit to help them.
I have to go but I will leave with this word of God this morning:
2Pe 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Have a blessed day, God bless you and help you in what you are passing through today. You are not alone, many people are going through some hard and difficult times. Stay strong in the Lord and the Power of His Might.
