Galatians 3:3 says "Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?"
WOW! We are all guilty of that. Especially being a woman, giving control over is hard! Although I do try to remember to give it all to God to handle and help! I am human so therefore I have been guilty of thinking I can do it on my own! And what a tragedy it ends up being when I don't let God do it! My #1 goal with this blog is to reach out to others and I refuse to control it, I will let God do His thing! I know that He will help with this as long as I keep that #1 goal first!
Romans 8:6 says "...but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace."
Thank you God! I can tell you that I could use that kind of life and peace 24/7! How about you? We are so busy with our lives and the earthly things that we forget that we can have this. God promises us right there in Romans! If we don't have this, it's our own fault! Give it to Him!
Dear Lord, please forgive us for trying to do it all on our own! We need your help with ALL we do including the main goal we should all have, getting to Heaven to see You! Remind us always that we can not do this alone, no matter what it is! Give us the Spirit to do all things so that we can have the life and peace you promise!! In Jesus name we pray. AMEN!
