Psalm 22:27-28 (MSG) From the four corners of the earth people are coming to their senses, are running back to GOD. Long-lost families are falling on their faces before him. GOD has taken charge; from now on he has the last word. 29. All the power-mongers are before him—worshiping! All the poor and powerless, too worshiping! Along with those who never got it together—worshiping!
Sometimes we feel powerless for one reason or another. You may be in a situation where other people have power over you. You may feel that you are trapped by the demands of others and that there’s no way to please them all. It’s a double bind: to please one is to disappoint another. Sometimes when we feel stuck and frustrated with our relationships, we look for a measure of control by escaping through our various addictive behaviors. There are times when you will feel powerless in life!
When you are caught in no-win situations, don’t run away through your addictive or compulsive escape practices. At times like these God is there, and the Lord wants to and will listen to your situation. God hears your cries and is willing to give you hope for the future. If in your life you feel powerless, admit it to God and watch God work in your life!
Point to ponder- Admit to God that you are powerless; surrender to the Lord and allow His Holy Spirit to overtake your life, it’s the power you need to move forward. You can begin today, and have a great day!
