One of the hardest things for us to do is ask for help from others. We spend too many frustrating hours trying to accomplish things on our own when asking for help would help us be more efficient. How many times have you tried to do a two man job by yourself? It doesn’t work very well. When you need four hands, you only have two. When you need the strength of two people, you only have one. The job would have been so much easier had you simply asked for another person to help you. Our walk with God is much the same. God has a plan for your life that you can not do on your own. You need His help in accomplishing what God has planned for your life. (Exodus 19:5 Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine.) God has chosen the path for our lives when he created us. All our life God has been imparting into our life the things that will help us be successful in the path He has for us to walk. It’s our choice to follow the path God has chosen for us. When we do, God enables us by His Spirit. When we chose our own paths and God is under no obligation to energize you to do what you have chosen. That is when we get frustrated, stressed beyond measure, burned out, and often lose self-control. All because we ignore the prompting of the Holy Spirit. God wants to bless us. God can only bless us when we are obedient to His commands. Life with or without God’s help, the choice is yours. Pastor Don [image: image.png]
