Have you ever been through a season when you felt as if you had no strength to carry on in the things that God would have you to accomplish? Are you going through such a season right now? We are warned that such seasons will come throughout the endeavors of our pilgrimage. However, we must continually be refreshed by the Word of God and be found pressing in during these times rather than withdrawing. This message spoke directly to my heart, and I pray that it will be encouraging to you as well. When we lean on our own understanding we steer ourselves into places we should not be. When we lean on the Lord, He will guide us in the way He has laid out before us. Oh Jesus let your will be done in and through our lives! Pour out your Holy Spirit. Revive us from the petty forms of self-reliance that we boast about and make us totally dependent on you. Transform our hearts. Cause us to press in. Help us God each and every day according to your Word! We need your promises. Enough of our own strength and understanding.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.

Proverbs 3:5-8
