"...nowhere else to go!" Abraham Lincoln met crises on his knees! During the Civil War he once said, "I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for the day." WHAT DO YOU DO? Complain, elam up, or commence your OWN solution? God says, it is NOT by works of righteousness which we have done" (Titus 3:5) and "there is NO king saved by the multitude of a host: a mighty man is NOT delivered by much strength" (Psalm33:16). If we try painting the well it does not change the water. Every time we work the pump we bring up more of the same water. As we draw upon our own human resources, they are never more than our own human resources. Our working cannot rise above its own level. "But to him that WORKETH NOT, but BELIEVETH on Him that justifieth (act of declaring a person righteous) the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" (Romans 4:5). "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9). "Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: He is their help and their shield.He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great" (Psalm 115:11,13). WHERE DO YOU GO? Family, friends or follow your OWN course? God says, "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end there of are the ways of death" (Proverbs 16:25). "Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near" (Isaiah 55:6). "But WITHOUT FAITH it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that HE IS, and that HE is a rewarder of them that DILIGENTLY SEEK Him" (Hebrews 11:6). "And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13). "I, even I, am the Lord and beside ME there is NO SAVIOUR.. I am the first, and I am the last; and beside ME there is NO GOD" (Isaiah 43:11; 44:6). "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else" (Isaiah 45:22). WHAT DO YOU FIND? Your OWN insufficiency or GOD'S SAVING SUFFICIENCY? I cannot, but GOD CAN! I know not, but GOD KNOWS! I have not, but GOD HAS! I will (or, I will not) bend my knees and look to the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved, secured and satisfied. "For whosoever shall CALL upon the NAME of the LORD shall be SAVED" (Romans 10:13). He invites you to come and to rely upon HIS WORD and HIS ABILITY to SAVE and to KEEP you.
