Repentance is not saying I'm sorry, it is saying I'm done!

What in your life seems impossible today?  Who do you FIRST turn to when times are difficult or seem impossible? Do you believe you can handle everything and try to do it on your own? Do you feel you have you progressed beyond God’s help? Don’t end up with God as a last resort--start with God as a first resort! We can do nothing without Jesus, the quicker we learn that the better. We need to get over ourselves, look away from ourselves and look up. We need to quit asking what can God do for me, realize the great things that God has already done for us.  


God is our protector, the only one that makes impossible things possible here on earth. There are situations where it is difficult to fathom God's love for us in these times of loss, separation, or despair; God’s love for us will not be shaken. "Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken." Psalm 62:5-6 


When we come to Christ through acceptance of the revelation that He is the one and only Son of God and all salvation is through Him, repentance should follow. Repentance is not saying I'm sorry, it is saying I'm done! I'm done with seeking help from the world, trying to do things on my own, and now I am focused on Christ.  “Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God.” Matthew 3:8 It is then that God can meet all our needs and make the impossible, possible. "Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:3-4


This is my Prayer:  God I know only you can make the impossible possible in my life.  Lord show me the things of this world that I need to leave behind, so that I can be closer to You.  Jesus I am done seeking help from the world and trying to do things on my own.   Help me to focus on You.  In Jesus name, Amen.
