Last night I was serving as a host at LifeChurch.TV and we talked about God & how he still does miracles. I had this analogy. Let's say I go grocery shopping and I am trying to unload them all by myself at my apartment ( where I have many stairs to climb ) . The trunk is full. I try to grab all the heavy bags alone in one trip to carry as many as I possibly can to avoid many trips back & forth. But my arms are only so big and only so strong. I can not carry them all alone. If I try I will hurt myself , fall short, or drop some and damage them! I should ask for help. When I step aside and allow someone to help me carry them it becomes easier.
That's like God miracles. Sometimes we try to carry burdens alone. But we are only so strong on our own. God wants to be our strength so we do not fall short!
2 Corinthians 12:9 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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
God is our strength. He wants us to ask him to help us and to strengthen us in his abilities. He is fully capable of any & all things. He sees what you need when you need it. He sees the solutions to your problems before you can. He is a safe light to guide you in this life's straight & narrow path you should be on. He wants you to not try to carry it all on your own. He wants to come along side you and help you carry it.
Also let's say your trying to fix things all in your own accord your own will & know how but nothing is happening like it should. Then friends that is the time to step aside and get out of God's way. You have done all you know to do but God I think sometimes waits maybe thinking " ok have you had enough shots at it yet? Are you finally ready to ask me for help?" Step aside and let God who still performs miracles today do one in your life. Get out of the way and stop messing with "it" let him do what he does best!
