Why is it that God leads us in this way, allowing such strong and constant pressure on us? One of His purposes is to show us His all-sufficient strength and grace more effectively than if we were free from difficulties and trials. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. [2 Cor. 4:7 NIV]

Another purpose is to bring us a greater awareness of our dependence upon Him. God is constantly trying to teach us how dependent we are on Him — that we are held completely by His hand and reliant on his care alone.
Days of Heaven and Earth, A.B. Simpson (1843-1919)
Are you feeling weak and helpless? It’s possibly the best place to be. I pray for you today that you will lean into Him more during this time and know abundantly more of His strength in your life. He knows exactly what you need. He is there with you.
Those who insist on going it alone are doomed, those who are interdependent upon Jehovah succeed.
