Why Do We Resist

There are times in our lives where we are tempted to do something we know we should not do.  We come up with all kinds of excuses, we find ways to resist God’s help and we wrestle with the only one who can help us.

Why is it that we resist the one who created us, taught us and molded us in his image. Why do we ignore the His help?  Why do we push aside the life saver and try to resist on our own, or even worse, resist because we want to do the sin?  If we have been drinking , why do we think we can drive?

The answer is always the same; “well I thought I could drive” or “I thought I could resist the devil on my own”; but if we truly thought about it we would realize we are the last person we should be listening to in those circumstances.  There really is only one answer to our troubles, Jesus Christ, our Savior, our help in time of need, our Champion.

Mumbles says,

Pray for his strength in our weaknesses and He will save us if we believe and trust  in him… not ourselves.

God’s strength to you all!
