Why do I fail? I want to succeed.
Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.
19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.
I have discovered, I put to much trust in my flesh, in my strength, my abilities, far to often. I want to get to the place of independence. What a mistake! Im reminded, I wasnt made to be independent. My greatest strength is when Im resting and trusting in Jesus. My promises become huge letdowns. I promised myself last night, Im getting up early for a huge breakfast. That didnt happen. Im tired, Im weak. True success is found in total trust in the Spirit of God to lead my day. That is another devo. We will only fail when we have good intentions, but rely on our flesh to carry them out.
