We praise the life that is self-sufficient. As if anything we have is actually from our own strength.
It is like we are living off an oxygen tank when the real air is there for the taking.
Taking into consideration that there is a power source from my Creator, I want to choose to live in that strength and not my own.
Does that make me weak? Yes, I am a human. Choosing to be empowered by the one who made me is taking real life breath instead of the canned stuff.
Phillipians 4:13I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
