You are feeling powerless because circumstances are out of your control. There is nothing you can do and this overwhelms you. I have promised you that my grace is sufficient. Take hold of this promise and run with it. When the glorious change occurs in your circumstances everyone will see My hand in it. So step back, allow yourself to show weakness, submit your pride to Me and boast in Me. When you finally allow your “self” to step aside is when I can come in and help. You can’t do it yourself but you feel obligated to try. Trust in Me and know that I don’t need your help, My power will show through your weakness… allow Me to work.
2 Corinthians 12:9 — But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest upon me.
This is a hard one… especially when it seems we need to do something… what do you do during these times?
