Possibly a bad pun, but a great song nonetheless! In john 15:5 it says
““Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.”
Quite often we can struggle so much trying to do what we feel is right that it becomes painful (like when i read a storybook on this verse to my son when he was a baby and my straining noises scared him to the point of tears!)
Last week i was at a point where i had to say to God “i am never content with what i have to offer you but do what you will tonight and bring who you wanna come to the youth group” by the end of the night we had more attendees than previous sessions and almost all were new to the church!
Sometimes our own desires get in the way of god doing his will, sometimes we need to step aside and let him “steal the show“!
Seeking to serve god is a great and marvellous desire but offer what you have already and don’t wait until it is “perfect” god uses the weak and poor to show his power, if you can do it in your own strength you won’t trust god in that situation or similar ones!
I hate asking for help if i think i can do something or if i should be able to, but every time I do ask for help, it makes life a lot easier!
God has all the resources at his disposal, its up to us to trust God in every situation and look out for those in need so that we can be the answer to someone’s prayer, whether spoken or just a heart’s desire or worry.
