No other resource but Him… the gift of Love

There is this story that about this wise Bible teacher that once said, “Sooner or later God will bring self-sufficient people to the place where they have no resource but Him—no strength, no answers, nothing but Him. Without God’s help, they’re sunk.”

He told of a despairing man who confessed to his pastor, “My life is really in bad shape.” “How bad?” the pastor inquired. Burying his head in his hands, he moaned, “I’ll tell you how bad—all I’ve got left is God.” The pastor’s face lit up. “I’m happy to assure you that a person with nothing left but God has more than enough for great victory!”

He reminded his students In that in 2 Chronicles 20:1-17 , the people of Judah were also in trouble. They admitted their lack of power and wisdom to conquer their foes. All they had left was God! But King Jehoshaphat and the people saw this as reason for hope, not despair. “Our eyes are upon You,” they declared to God (2 Chronicles 20:12).

There are times when we are at our lowest… when we feel all hope is lost; some even consider bringing that precious gift of life to an end…. remember there is always the friendship of God to bring us through. He is our hope and you will not be disappointed as He fulfills His promise: “The battle is not yours, but God’s” (v.15).

When all you have is God, you have all you need.
