It’s Not In You

“You will find the Lord your God, if you search after Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29

I recently saw a Gatorade commercial where athletes swallow the power drink, work up a sweat, and orange or green sweat beads pop out everywhere. Then comes the question, “Is it in you?”

When it comes to the question of fixing your life, the answer is “No, it’s not in you.” The mind that led you down the path of sickness won’t lead you to a place of health.

Maybe you’ve been telling yourself you can figure things out on your own. But, I don’t think so. If you could do it alone, you’d have done so by now. Although you might see it as weakness, the greatest act of strength is admitting that you don’t have the answers, trusting that God does, then turning to Him for help.

Turning to Him takes various forms; It might be as simple as prayer, or it might be counseling, books, workshops, accountability groups and such. Be open to many different avenues for answers and for help. This will take some humility on your part to admit you do indeed need some help.

“We can never solve our significant problems from the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

I’m reminded of a verse in Colossians 1:27…

“To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27

Have you come to God for help? Have you asked Him to merciful to your soul because of your helpless state of sinfulness? He’s is the only one who can help you from your dire situation. Won’t you cry out to Him today?
