Consider the wisdom of Ruth Chou Simons [she/her] | @ruthchousimons

“Our ceaseless striving gets us nowhere.⁣

God assigns the impossible so that His purposes, His way, can be on display. ⁣

The parting of the Red Sea, Abraham and Sarah, Moses and Pharoah, a virgin birth, the death and resurrection of the Savior…⁣⁣

…it’s always been God’s story of divine power, extravagant love, and merciful rescue. ⁣

⁣It was never about any of their abilities, just like it’s not about yours or mine.⁣

Whatever feels impossible is meant to draw us to fall upon His unchanging character; it’s meant to free us…to trust Him to hold all things together. ⁣

“Ah, Lord GOD! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.” (Jeremiah 32:17)⁣

⁣Nothing is too hard for you, God. Still our striving and replace it with the wonder of your great power. Amen.⁣

TELL ME: Where do you find yourself striving, even now? (Hint: look at where you’re anxiously working to attain for yourself what is meant for God to provide?”
