In His Strength, Not Mine
I have not made New Year’s resolutions in many-a-year, but when I saw this little poster on Pinterest, each “to-do” is what my heart’s desire is for each day, each moment. I do the best I can. If my walk is close to my LORD, as I strongly desire, I am able only in His Strength, not mine.
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
Abba Father, You bless me with every heartbeat, every breath. May my dependence upon You be full. I want to live each moment in reliance upon You for all I am and all I do. I pray I know that every gift I receive is from You. In every encounter, I want the kindness of Jesus to pour through me, out into the heart of the one I am with at that moment. I want to give You my need to control. I pray that I would listen to my heart…not only for the beats, but words and emotions that are coming through this lifeline for they will be from You, my Father. You are my Lifeline for You have filled my veins with the red blood that keeps this body alive, and The Blood of Jesus that has saved me. I pray that each day will be productive for Your Kingdom. I ask for Your peace upon me as I do whatever You call me to do. The very breath I inhale and exhale continuously is from You, so I want to breathe You all my days. In Your Son’s Holy Name, I pray. Amen.
