true.. and because we are weak, we can also ask the Lord to give us His Grace & Mercy to be able to change - whatever it is.. That is the Good News. A life of trying to live under the Law in our own strength is impossible, produces frustration and leads to pride.
"That is why He says, God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but gives grace (continually) to the lowly (those who are humble enought to receive it)." James 4:6
I really like this poem:
I want you to face the mountain
so that you can see,
when the mountain is out of the way
all there is left is Me
Only I can move the mountain,
only I can push it away,
only I can conquer the problems
that you face today.
Your only job is to believe,
to listen to My voice,
and when you hear what I command,
obedience is your choice.
But I will not make it too difficult
for the victory is already Mine,
and I will fill you with My Spirit
and through you My grace will shine.
Not when you are perfect,
like you think you need to be,
but when your heart is willing
to become more and more like Me. (:
