Psalm 50:15New Living Translation (NLT)
15 Then call on me when you are in trouble,
and I will rescue you,
and you will give me glory.”
When will I learn that I can do nothing without God?
I mean really, I teach this in CROSSTraining every week, but the human side of me has to be reminded…often.
Just this morning, a client needed something very simple. Something that I do nearly everyday and lo and behold, my computer started acting funny. Mind you I have invested in a MacBook so NOTHING should ever be wrong with this thing. This morning everything seemed to go “wrong”
An avid coffee drinker, my coffee was “off” this morning. That should’ve been the first sign that something was up.
Just when I was about to have a mini panic attack, I remembered something.
I haven’t asked for HELP.
I was in trouble (deadline trouble) and I had been relying on my own ability, my own skills, my own computer and not on my OWN Savior.
I quickly got up from my desk, asked God for forgiveness and to SHOW me what to do to make this client happy with my services.
God is not slack when it comes to answering prayer. Immediately, my disposition changed from one of anxiety to one of peace. Within a few clicks I had completed my project and the response from the client after 1 minor change was “perfect”
I exhaled and said “God, I thank you”
God doesn’t want us to rely on our own abilities, he wants us to depend on him. He wants to get the credit, and he rightly deserves to do so.
