God Enabling in Self-Disabling
Rather than the Lord helping those who help themselves, He helps those who are helpless. We build entire systems of thought to avoid facing the reality of helplessness, it is the universal human experience. The remedy is not wishful thinking to an abstract symbol or vague Higher Power. A personal God reaches out in grace, through Jesus Christ, to those at an end of themselves. Freedom comes in surrender and giving up the illusion of our own performance. In addition, there are times God will allow more than we can handle. It could be said this is His usual way to draw us to Himself and enable us to grow. God will never give us more than He can handle, in us, through us, and for us.
A God of grace strengthens us in His wonderful Son, Jesus. We walk in joy as we daily submit our lives to Him.
