'Blessed are those who recognise they are spiritually helpless. The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to them' (Matthew 5:3 GWT). It may not feel like a blessing to be totally helpless, but God has an excellent track record of giving blessings in those times. With your best intentions exhausted, it's perfect for God's best intentions to come into the picture. When you've run out of your own strength, God can more easily point you to His. Are you all out of steam today? Read this: 'Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, "Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense [restoration]...He will come and save you''' (Isaiah 35:3-4 NKJ).
If you've got little to show for your best efforts, God will elevate you at the right time. If everything has just come crashing to the ground, God will re-attach wings to your hopes and throw them back into flight. He will grow things from your dust. He says so: '...And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; it shall blossom abundantly...' (Isaiah 35:1-2 NKJ). Take heart: God is the God of restoration. The moment that you become empty of your own power, He'll remind you that His is much greater.
So what now? If you're feeling 'spiritually helpless', kneel in prayer and ask for God's strengthening power to flood you. Sometimes the physical act of kneeling before God can help re-adjust your mental attitude.
