It's Okay To Say I Can't

There’s one thing I know.

No matter how many friends we have…

No matter how much money is in the bank…

No matter how successful we think we are…

We all need a Savior.

If you’re like me, I’m sure you’ve had those moments when you thought, “God, I can handle this on my own.”

“You don’t need to get involved this time. I can do it.”

Then just as we think we’ve got it all together, it all comes tumbling down.

You see, houses built on the sand of our own self-effort collapse in the storm. That’s just the way the world works.

But houses built on the Rock will never fall. (Matthew 7:24-27)

It’s Okay To Say I Can’t Do This On My Own
It’s okay to admit, “I don’t know what to do next.” It’s okay to be vulnerable.

God never intended for us to go through this life on our own. He doesn’t expect us to have it all figured out.

That’s why His mercies are new every morning. (Lamentations 3:23)

That’s why His power is made perfect in our weakness. (1 Corinthians 12:9)

That’s why He is the God of the hills and the valleys. (1 Kings 20:28)

You see, when we are weak, He is strong. When we are discouraged, He is our Comforter. When all hell seems to be breaking loose, He is the peace that surpasses all understanding.

We All Need A Savior
At one time or another, we will all reach a point when we come to the end of ourselves.

It’s in this moment that we are able to cry out to God, “Save me.” It’s in this moment that it’s no longer our will, but His will. It’s in this moment that we give ourselves away.

Today, I want to invite you to quit struggling in your own self-effort. I want to invite you to look to Jesus.

He has the answer. All you have to do is ask.

Prayer For Today
Lord, help me to depend more on you today. Help me to realize that nothing is too small for you. You are my Savior. Thank you for saving me from my sin and from every challenge that presents itself today! I receive your wisdom, protection, and favor. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Still Waters Run Deep

I’m a scuba diver. My husband is a scuba diver ONLY because he’s clingy and always wants to go with me. :). One of the million reasons I love him. A few years ago, we went diving when the waves were rolling and It was kind of ROUGH. David said, “I can’t go down there […]

I Can Do All Things?!?

One day, in like 2009, I was sitting at my desk. Everything was in order. All was calm. I had just finished reviewing an audit of the ministry and life was good. I remember sitting back and thinking, “Wow. It’s quiet around here. I wonder if they even NEED me around here? Maybe I should […]

God’s Not Done With Me Yet!

A girl at the Earth City Campus came up after service to talk to me. She said, “Pastor Nicole, I’m not saved. I can’t pray that prayer. I’m not LIVING RIGHT yet.” I said, “Oh Sugar! If you wait until that happens, you’re NEVER going to make that decision!” “I’m saved AND a pastor, and […]
