Perhaps you’re in need of a coach to inspire you or a drill sargent to shout in your face reminding you that we need to pull through, overcome and win a battle. Maybe you’re unhealthy and before you are able to move at all you’re in need of a doctor. Maybe you just need more self confidence or the opposite, a blow to your ego. Whichever is true for you I believe God is that something. God’s words are just as applicable today as they always were throughout history. We can get just what we need from Him.
What inspires me others may not find inspirational at all, what matters is that we find what we need to help us carry one through life because we all need help. We all face various conflicts from our environment and struggles from within.
It happens so regularly that it’s predictable. The moment I decide to do good, sin is there to trip me up. I truly delight in God’s commands, but it’s pretty obvious that not all of me joins in that delight. Parts of me covertly rebel, and just when I least expect it, they take charge. I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? Isn’t that the real question? Romans 7:21-24 MSG
The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does. He acted to set things right in this life of contradictions where I want to serve God with all my heart and mind, but am pulled by the influence of sin to do something totally different.
