This one just leapt out at me afresh and sent me meditating....
"Not sufficient of ourselves to think anything....of ourselves, BUT OUR SUFFICIENCY IS OF GOD.
John 15:5b "for without Me ye can do nothing."
A true perspective on life is often more clearly seen in the deep waters of trial, rather than in the calmer water's of life. 'Tis then, when the rubber meets road in life's steeper paths, then we realise our own inadequacy and insufficiency....
For " lo, I am with you always.. even to the end of the world."...
Yes right where we are at Now.
We need to simply lean on the Lord, our Strength. He didn't say in the "Abiding" chapter of John 15:5 "Without Me, ye can do Nothing." without a good reason.
So rest in the ALL sufficiency of our great God and our Saviour for your daily walk.
|This is done in 1990's before digital camera and was using water colours rather than Gouache, so colours are much more subtle .. found even very good water colours faded too much.|
I need the LORD every moment of every day, truly without Him I can do nothing..
