I Can't But He Can!

Sometimes when God tells us to do something we say, "I can't do this" when we are exactly right - we can't. Not without God's help. Finally we hit our knees and cry out to God that we need His help. Psalm 77: 1, "I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me." He gives us what we need when we need it. 2 Thessalonians 1: 2, "Our God gives you everything you need, makes you everything you're to be." This is how I started learning about trust and that was 28 years ago and I am still learning.

God has shown me that I am anointed and this is His power over my flesh to do what only He can do. If you have been born again, then Christ lives inside of you. All you have to do is believe the anointing is in you. I had always thought that Mother Teresa and Billy Graham were anointed but not Jill! You may have felt the same but as children of God, we are anointed! Mother Teresa, Billy Graham, You and me! 1 John 2: 27, "As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you."

God gives us tasks that are bigger than what we can do in our natural power. He gives us knowledge and wisdom that is not limited to the world. We have the Holy Spirit to guide us. When God calls us to do something He will enable, entrust and empower us to accomplish God's will. When that happens, God's will is done and He has proved, once again, that He is faithful beyond belief! By being obedient, God blesses us in other ways!
