because the more things change the more they stay the same

>Is It Good to Have Need of God?

>He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak (Isaiah 40:29)

Why do we humans insist that we need certain things in order to fulfill God’s will in our lives? If we had more money, we cold give more. If our health were better, we could be part-time missionaries. If we didn’t have to clean the house, cook, and do laundry, we could write a novel in ten days. Whatever our perceived goal, we only see the obstacles. Because we focus on the why we can’t we miss the opportunity to see how God can. Does this mean we should praise the obstacles because then the thing accomplished is more to the glory of God? I wonder, if it’s possible to witness the full measure of God, if we don’t have need of Him?
