    Self-reliance is a path that always leads us to the end of ourselves. The world teaches us that the goal is self-actualization and self-reliance. There are thousands of self-help books that try to teach how to reach that goal. You can do it! Just do it! Well if you have lived very long, you have learned that this simply does not work. Sooner or later you will realize that I just can’t do this, it is impossible. This is the teachable moment when you can learn that with man this is impossible, but that with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:6). You learn that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). You replace the self in self-reliance with Jesus-reliance. Then you must trust and obey for there is no other way. You have to do it His way, “He already has in mind what He is going to do.” Lord let it be so with me!
