Exodus 14:10 ” As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord.”

I’m quick to say, “I trust in the Lord!”  I really have no qualm about putting my faith in Him…it’s just myself I can’t trust.  For I believe I know what I can’t do…but am I really trusting in the Lord then?  That’s because every time I say to myself, “I can’t do that.”  I’m denying and discounting what the Lord can do through me.   Now I know I can’t save myself…I can only depend upon God for deliverance.  So then I need to take that same trusting dependence and apply it to my “I can’t do that.” statements.  For the bottom line is, my dependence can never be on myself, but on God alone.
