You can’t, God can!

by Glen Elliott | series |

What we all know is that self-help, self-esteem, and self-control all have the same problem – self. And the great deception we struggle with is that we think we can fix our problems. But, it was you who got you into your problems. Why do you think you can get out of the problem on your own? That’s what we call insanity. Real faith is about being real with God, reaching out to him, seeking his power and help. The most important first step to recovery is “I can’t.” Getting to the place of knowing we are desperate is a place where we make room for God. But not all desperate people ask for help! Here’s our hope of deliverance and freedom; We acknowledge that we need God the most. So start here: “I am not God. I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and my life is unmanageable.” Chose a power greater than yourself. His name is Jesus, the one whom God raised from the dead.
