Have you ever been in that place–wanting to help your children but not knowing how? I’ve definitely been there more than a few times. It’s a hard thing watching your child struggle and feeling powerless to help.
I was reading 2 Corinthians 4:7 this morning and it reminded me that in my limited abilities, I can do nothing. But with God’s power, I (and my children) can do all things.
The answer is the same for all followers of Christ. Through our dependence upon His power we are victorious.
2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
