Without Jesus Christ we can do nothing but WITH Jesus ALL THINGS are possible. It is impossible to walk on water but while Peter had His eyes on Jesus he was walking on water. The moment he looked away from Jesus and he saw the waves and the water he realized that it is impossible and then he sank. He said:”Lord help me!” Jesus grabbed him and pulled him up.
The apostle Paul said:”I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who gives me the strength.” We can overcome, we can stop sinning, we can do what Jesus requires of us if we just stay focused on Him, if we keep our eyes on Him. In us there is nothing good but when we are focused on Jesus then His power works in and through us to achieve His will.
The POWER is in Jesus Christ, not in ourselves. Self improvement will not empower us to do the will of God, to overcome, to defeat the devil, it is Jesus Christ, as long as we stay focused on Him. Jesus will never leave us, He will never forsake us BUT we have to STAY WITH HIM. We have to follow Him every day. The moment we look away from Jesus we are already defeated because WITH Jesus all things are possible, nothing is impossible for those who follow Jesus Christ.
Get your focus on Jesus, follow Him and you WILL overcome.
May Jesus bless you.
