There is nothing in us that allows us to claim that we are capable of doing this work. The capacity we have comes from God; it is he who made us capable of serving the new covenant, which consists not of a written law but of the Spirit. The written law brings death, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:5-6 GNT

The fulfillment of the Divine purpose in life comes not in the energy and wisdom of human nature, not also from self-efforts, struggles, scheming, manipulations, and stress.

Divine accomplishment comes only by your total surrender to Jesus Christ, wholly following Him, and by your absolute dependence on the Holy Spirit. God does all He has purposed in anyone and by anyone only by Himself and He alone works out His counsel in His way, by His terms, and in His own time.

If life or what you do is burdensome then, there is something fundamentally wrong. If what you do is commanded by the Lord and you are walking in the Lord’s strength, there should be no complaints because God alone is sufficient to fund whatever He has commanded. However, if you are seeking to produce for God and by your efforts, frustrations, disappointments, and failure will be inevitable.

So, as you continue in the journey into the rest of this month and this year, know that the best of man is still human. Never rely on the arms of the flesh but trust only in God and He will all by Himself take care of you and grant you outstanding success wherever and in whatever He leads you to do.

I pray the Lord will help you to acknowledge Him in all your ways, to look only unto Him for direction and provisions and you shall never be disappointed in Jesus’ name. Good morning and do have a great day.

Your brother,

Olufemi Babalola
