2 Corinthians 3: 5

I’m in 2 Corinthians 3 today.

Remember how I keep saying God’s timing is perfect? Well, it still is.

2 Corinthians 3:5 states:

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God.

Talk about timely!

I’m on this huge journey right now and some days I can’t imagine how I’ll ever stay faithful or keep at it or press on.

And that’s exactly right. On my own, I’m not sufficient. I don’t have what it takes to be faithful, or loving, or kind, or patient, or forgiving, or joyful, or anything at all.

The first step on the path to humility is admitting – and sincerely believing – that.

I can do nothing worthy of praise outside of God’s equipping and so I need to beg for it daily and depend on it in the same way I depend upon the air to keep me breathing.

May God be praised that He is big enough to carry all our burdens so that we don’t have to? Our job is to trust in, rely on, and faithfully obey Him. He’s in charge of the rest!

Until Next Time My Friends,
