thoughts (that may be a bit discombobulated as i was driving, thinking, and typing)
Gods ideal for helping us to do or be is by providing opportunities to do and be and only after beginning to put forth a concerted effort, relying on Him for the strength to succeed. It’s coming to a realization of what you know you’ll do in situations, believing that God can give you the strength to do differently, then acting like it. But with God being God, our “acting” will become legitimate habits and intentions just by virtue of who He is, and what He has promised.
when we depend less on people and the worlds requirements and standards of us and more of Gods requirements of us, success will always be ours because He is the only one who has a vested interest in our success, and has the resources to make it a reality..
