She believed she could. So she did. It’s so empowering and inspiring! It almost sounds like a Bible verse. But is it?

In this episode we look at…

  • What does the Bible say about believing we can and doing?
  • Why is it important to know what the Bible says?
  • How does it affect our lives?

2 Corinthians 3:5, “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God,”

John 15 ~ several verses talk about without ME you can do nothing…

It’s not about what “I” can do, but about God doing what He wants to do in and through me.

It also can cause me to look at others, compare myself with others and end up feeling less-than because what others can do, maybe I can’t.

  • In 2 Corinthians 10:12, God tells us not to compare ourselves with others.
  • Galatians 2:20 reminds us that it Christ living in and through us.
  • 2 Corinthians 4:7 tells us that we have this treasure in earthen vessels (our bodies) that the all surpassing power is of God and not of us.

“She believed that she could, so she did” is the complete opposite of how God wants us to live. It’s a lie.

In fact, the only reason we can do anything is because God has given us health and breath, the mental capacity and even the open doors to do them.

Knowing the truth takes the pressure off of us.

It reminds us that…

  • Our sufficiency in is Christ and helps us want what He wants and not want what He doesn’t want.

It also reminds us to…

  • Seek His will over ours and to ask God what it is He has called and gifted us to do.

She believed that she could, so she did” reminds us that while things sound biblical, it doesn’t mean they are. It’s up to us to dig deep and find out for ourselves whether or not they are true.

In closing, remember truth and error cannot co-exist. A lot of truth with a little error is still error.

Trust truth and remember, your sufficiency is found in the Lord.
