“So then, does He who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?” (Galatians 3:5)

Who is able to do anything good apart from God?  There are no real workers of miracles, only those who are given charism that the Lord gives which enables them to have God’s power flow through them. Even the breath we breath is a gift of God.  Do not then boast of things you can do when it is the Lord who is in and through all things.  Trust in the Lord and walk according to His ways.

Lord, let me not fall into the trap of thinking that I can do anything apart from You.  Guide me in the way of life for which You died that I might live as Yours.  Teach me day by day all I need to know that I may be guided by You alone and not by my ego or any other thing.  Lead me, O Lord, and help me to always follow.  Do through me whatever You choose to do that I may give witness of Your presence in my life.

Lord Jesus, You are the author and finisher of all of our faith.  Guide Your faithful that together we may give witness of Your presence and purpose in this life.  Let me not ever claim what is not mine, but always give thanks for Your goodness which shines through all I do.  Lead me, O Lord, that I may be empowered to follow.  Use me, O Lord, that I may show forth Your goodness.  Amen.
