With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes. —Psalm 108:13

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. —Psalm 20:7

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. —John 15:5

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” —Matthew 19:26

            What can we do as humans that will last for eternity?  Nothing…  All that is in this life is temporary.  Architects build buildings that crumble over time.  Roads are built that need constant maintenance from generation to generation and so it is with dams, railways, monuments and anything that man makes.  Our very bodies are temporary and decaying even as I write this and you read it.

The only thing on this planet that will exist forever is man… and he has a choice to make.  The body is fading, but what about the person who dwells in that shell?  Will man choose heaven or hell, God’s ways or Satan’s ways, eternal life or eternal death, a trust in Jesus or a trust in self, Jesus on the throne of their life or themselves on their throne of life?  Will they serve God or self?  What is more important than a relationship with God through His Son, Jesus and to be empowered by His Holy Spirit?

Man can do valiantly only through God.  We need to trust Him.  It is the only way we can bear fruit that remains” (John 15:16).  What seems impossible with man, and is, is not impossible with God and we “can do all things through Christ who gives (us) strength” (Philippians 4:13).  “But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere” (II Corinthians 2:14).  May we be faithfully yielding to Him working in and through our lives.

Dear Father may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.  Be pleased to honor Your Name through my life for Your glory.  May it be so!
