If can do God's work in their own strength, then it is not God's work at all.

If we can accomplish tasks without God, then He will not get the glory. People will look at what we have done and give us the credit.

-Brother Yun

"Seek the Lord and His strength;

Seek His face evermore!"
Psalms 105:4

"It is God who arms me with strength,
And makes my way perfect."
Psalms 18:32

"In the day when I cried out,
You answered me,
And made me bold with strength in my soul."
Psalms 138:3

Wow! This really spoke to true. It is all too easy to take credit for our own accomplishments and so difficult for us to realize we cannot do anything that truly matters without the power of the Holy Spirit working within our hearts.
Thank you so much for sharing this Bethany!
