Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase.I can't find an author for that last one -- maybe it was Tia's original statement. But it's so true. We were talking in Sunday School last week about how satan is constantly trying to get man to act independently from God. It's way too easy to get sucked into doing that without even realizing it... I'm humble, I'm listening, God gives direction, I actually GET IT, and then bam, I take off running! "Thanks God, I got this!" No, no, no, no, no. I need to stay at His side, not run ahead of Him, because His NEXT direction might call for me to do something different than His LAST direction. My devotion this morning was basically about this very thing.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
You are at your weakest when you believe yourself to be your strongest. We need HIM every hour.
Help me not to forget it Lord -- I need You every hour!!!
