One Thing 1/20/13

1Th. 5:24 He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.

By now all of you have already broken any New Years resolutions you may have made. You discovered, one again, that true change can’t be accomplished by will power alone. If it could, you would have never needed Jesus. We are created to need God. Humans don’t function right without Him, just like birds don’t fly well without wings. The most important resolution, that really affects change in our lives, is His resolution to be faithful to share His ability with us everyday. Remember that He IS ABLE to do exceedingly, abundantly, beyond anything you could ever ask or imagine, and He, with all that ABILITY is your inheritance. He is the resolution keeper. In all the things that make up our daily lives, both the big and the small, He is there with us and in us prepared to DO IT. We just have to let Him. Stop living on the batteries of human weakness, and start living by the supernatural power of the one who conquered death. He’s not surprised your best effort didn’t work; it never has. Trade all of that in for HIS best effort. Now that is trading UP.
