It is a periodic revelation to me that I cannot obey God in my own power. My white-knuckling attempts at being godly in my own strength do not please Him. I need to repeatedly learn the lesson that I must acknowledge my own powerlessness to obey (as in 2 Chronicles 20:12), then plead with Him to do in me what I cannot do on my own (Galatians 2:20), and cling to Him as though my life depended on it (Deuteronomy 13:4). Then watch with humility, satisfaction, wonder, and worship, as His Spirit works out His will in me. Like a Hand-in-glove.
“For we are powerless before this great multitude who are coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You.” 2 Chronicles 20:12
“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” Galatians 2:20
“You shall follow the Lord your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him.” Deuteronomy 13:4
