I don’t remember where the title of this message comes from, but it has more truth than one realizes. After spending most of my life trying to get things done the only thing I really obtained was getting further behind. It was not until I met Jesus that most things began to change. Notice I said most things. I say that because I still have the tendency to try it on my own. Even though it does not work out I still try.
God has made a fantastic offer to us and if we will just get over ourselves we will see how much we can really accomplish with Him. He has made us an offer we can’t refuse or that we shouldn’t refuse. Just imagine how many times we have taken two steps forward and one step back never seeming to get anywhere when all along there was a path that not only would get us there but get us there in a fraction of the time. If you are anything like me (and I hope you’re not) sometimes it takes a board alongside of the head to get my attention and get my eyes opened to how much more I can accomplish with God. As for me I am a slow learner but I do learn.
I could tell by watching the History Channel’s the Bible on the final night how a light went off in the minds of the disciples when the Holy Spirit entered into them and they had a new life knowing how much more they could accomplish having God living inside of them. As you watch their struggles you notice a lot of yourself in them and then in the twinkling of an eye God touches them and they know. They know that they can accomplish more than they could ever have imagined without Him. We know these things as well. God wants to do more in us than we could ever imagine or even dream the only thing He is looking for is for us to realize it ourselves and surrender to Him.
God has done so much for us and I for one have learned that I can accomplish more in one hour with Him then I ever could have done on my own without Him.
God Bless You
