When Overwhelmed, Abide First

So many times, I want to move into action in my own efforts to solve problems, to have impact, and to make a difference. But today I remember John 15:5 where Jesus says to abide with Him. He says, “apart from me you can do nothing.”

Nothing! Apart from God, we can do nothing. If we remain in His love, however, we do extraordinary acts of love empowered and directed by the Holy Spirit.
