Ending self-reliance

I’ve been deceived into trusting in my own strengths. We need to seek God and humble ourselves under a Sovereign God. When we are in those anxious moments, and I’ve had my share of them, I need to come to repentance, to come to the realization of my own sin of self-reliance. I’ve hit my head against a brick wall many times. I can be stubborn, yes, stubborn.

God’s word through his Holy Spirit reminds me of the cross and of Jesus’ redemption for the forgiveness of my sins, he renews my confidence to continue trusting in God and his Son Jesus. His grace is sufficient and his power to turn us from ourselves is what saves us. Our victory is not of our own but it is of God.
