Seek God for Strength
In order for me to stop relying so much on myself and what I can do within my limitations. I have had to learn to grow to a place of humility. Humbleness in seeking help, guidace, and strength.
Learning that to grow to a place of humbleness means some part of me had to come to submission. That part of me is my soul (mind, will, and emotions).
Our soul will lead us around in life as we continue to allow it to do so. I can be a very emotionally and logically lead person and neither of those two characteristics are favorable to faith in what God says He can and will do.
Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually.
Psalms 105:4 NASB
To seek His face continually in prayer and causing my soul to come under the submission of the spirit is a constant work.
There are days the battle for my soul to submit is like WWIII and other days its easier. That is only because some areas are just now learning to submit; whereas, other areas have had some work on already.
The new areas where the battles wages hard are the places where I need God strength the most. Cause I will be fighting in my own strength and not allowing Him to fight my battles for me.
As the word of truth says that in my weakness His strength is made perfect in me. That too comes with trust and allowing God to do the necessary work in me that He wants to see me grow and mature in.
This growing and choosing to submit is a daily choice to make to see me grow into more the woman of God he had predestined for me to become.
