God Can When You Can’t

…“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

2 Corinthians 12:9

As long as you say, “I can,” God “cannot” in your life. When you rely on your own strength and believe that you can do it, God won’t be able to help you. He won’t force His help on you when you don’t see the need for it. But when you turn to Him and say, “I cannot,” oh He can, He can! His “I can” will flow through your “I can’t.” His strength is made perfect in your weakness.

Beloved, when you say, “I can,” you are saying that you don’t need saving, and the Savior will let you be. But when you look to Him and say, “Lord, I can’t kick this big, bad habit,” He will say, “No problem. I am a Savior who is greater than this habit.” He will rush in to save you. He will empower you to overcome it.

When you look to Him and say to Him, “Lord, I can’t change my spouse. I can’t change my child. I’m so tired. Please take over,” He will say, “No problem. Watch me do a deep, transforming work in their lives and in yours.” He will work in you, through you and for you, and what seems impossible to you will become possible!

  • Tina Runge says:

    Thank you Lord. I give you the burdens, cares, and pain I have carried. I give it to You. It is too heavy for me. Thank you for your grace and mercy. Amen.

  • Leah says:

    I give up. I’ve called out to Jesus to help me but to no avail. The situation I am in has brought me to feel life is too difficult for me to cope with anymore . Even in 4day court trial I constantly thought “grace grace” but the outcome was bad… (Still ongoing)There is a lot to explain, and constant problems (not the usual kind)and traumas and bad things happening ever since I can remember. I’ve tried prayer, reading and listening and resting in the bible word etc etc etc and for some reason it looks like He doesn’t want to help me. Please help (guidance)?( Greatful for your prayers too.) Thanks.

    • Denise says:

      Leah. First of all you are in our prayers. For this past year I have beengoing through some very difficult times many times telling my husband that I can’t do this anymore so please don’t give up. There is light in our tunnel because of Jesus our Lord and Grace. Please get Joseph Princes teaching on the Battle is the Lords. You can here a portion of this on YouTube. Sometimes I listened to this 2 or 3 times a day I just kept feeding my spirit and mind on these truths until I could rest and receive. The victory will be yours if you do this. May not be easy but your reward will be great when you trust in our beautiful faithful Lord Jesus. Let Him carry you through this He loves you and is waiting for you to rest in His strength ❤️❤️❤️
