S On My Chest?

I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does” (Romans 7:24-25 MSG).
We all have areas of life we’d change if we could. We’ve tried over and over to make our lives better on our own. And we’ve failed…. miserably.
Why? We can’t change ourselves. If we could, we would. But we can’t, so we won’t.
Willpower doesn’t work. At the most, it works for six months. But we have a limited supply of willpower. Pretty soon we run out of it and give up. We go off the diet and back to the bad habits. We go back to the bad relationships and start doing the same patterns we were in earlier. We need more than willpower to change our lives.
We need God’s power.
Paul understood this. He wrote, “I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? The answer, “thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does” (Romans 7:24-25 MSG).
So give up trying to change yourself, you don’t need a class, you don’t need a new relationship, you don’t need a self-help book, you don’t need more money…. You need Jesus! Be Blessed
