Topic: No Man Is Self-Sufficient [Friday May 12, 2017]
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God” – 2 Corinthians 3:5
Deficiency results when a man begins to think he is self sufficient.
When you think you are capable you become incapable. When you think you are able you become disabled.
When Nebuchadnezzar began to think of his efficiency he lost his throne (Daniel. 4: 29-36).
Rely On Him!
God does not call people who are able, He calls the unable so that He can enable them. He looks for people who will rely and even the disabled on Him. “…that no man may glory in the flesh” (1 Corinthians 1:26-29).
If Jesus, said, “I can of myself do nothing” (John 5:30), then we need God’s help much more.
If you don’t want life to be a burden, let God carry it for you. “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7).
Rely on God and let the whole world know He is your sufficiency.
