To the enemy’s delight, we strive and weary ourselves endeavoring to do a work that only God can do. May it not be. Lord, help us.

We cannot do the inner fixing, but we can invite God into the deep places—the unvisited, unclothed, unattractive parts of our soul we rather not see, we rather not Him see. Those dark crevices that desperately need to be bathed in His light.

If we only knew, He is just waiting for us to let Him in. Not so He could condemn us, but so He could remake us.
He restores us, making us new again into what He created us to be. He leads us in the paths of righteousness, uprightness and right standing with Him—not for our earning it, but for His name’s sake. {Ps 23:3}

“When we despair of gaining inner transformation through man’s power of will and determination, we are open to a wonderful new realization: inner righteousness is a gift from God to be graciously received. The needed change within us in God’s work, not ours.” — Richard J. Foster, Celebration of Discipline
