We become open to letting others help us. Our pride may be crumbled up in a ball in the corner feeling sorry for itself, but we’re finally in a position to let God off the sidelines and into the game.
Sometimes the only way He can begin to use us in the way He planned is when we are on the floor in a fetal position lamenting the loss of everything we worked so hard to control.
There’s a good reason step one of the 12 steps says: “Admitted we were powerless over our burning issue and that our lives had become unmanageable.”
Ok, I changed it slightly but you get the idea.
What is your burning issue? Is it fear, anger, jealousy, power, food, drugs, alcohol, or other people?
Once we stop trying to control it and admit it’s controlling us, we are finally on the journey to victory.
2nd Corinthians 12:9 tells us that God’s power works best in our weakness. Or maybe another way to say it is that God’s power works best in our humility.
What is getting in the way of Gods plan for your life?
