You can do nothing: said the Lord to me while caught in the surf after my Coast Guard Service. I was a very strong swimmer, and God made sure he broke that in me… I was in my mid 20’s then, he wants humble servants and people who will depend on him, and him alone!
This kind of thing runs against our carnal natures, as it is spiritual in nature. This is a hard lesson to be learned, and we must be broken and humbled in heart, before we will seek the Lord.
