I Can Do It Myself

Jan 18th, 2017 | By Ava M. Gardner

I can do it myself. This is a frequent declaration we, as fallen individuals,i can do it make on a frequent basis. We don't need help. We can find the way (without a map), or we are just invincible.

But, guess what? We do need help and lots of it. That is why every year, when we make the new or (forever renewed resolution) to be better or do better. Trouble is, we just can't do it by ourselves. But, its hard to admit you need help. Right?

When our church started the Daniel 'Plan', we all looked for ways in how we, as individuals, were going to conquer or be successful in this initiative. 'I can do this' was a daily mantra. Half-way through, fear and concern sort of peek from the clouds to say, "In Ten Days, You Can Go Back To Your Old Ways."

We don't want to go back, but in some cases, it will happen. We are climbing a mountain. Either we make it to the top, or turn around and go back.

Why was Daniel able to stay true to his fast and prove God was great above all else? Because, he relied on God to get him through the trial, and he was a willing vessel.

As we trek through this journey, let God carry your backpack, and you just focus on stepping over the rocks. No one makes it to the top 'alone.'

Psalm 94:22
But the LORD has been my stronghold, And my God the rock of my refuge.
