“In our spiritual life many of us seem to be content struggling along with all the poor primitive resources of a weak human nature, while all the infinite power of the God-head is at our disposal. There is no condition of human nature, no circumstance of human life, that is not completely provided for in the all-embracing love of our Father God; yet the vast majority of His children struggle along life’s road, bearing burdens that He is eager to carry, and has urged them to entrust to Him. I wonder why?
It should be an easy thing, an alluring thing, a thrilling thing to talk to God.”
-Springs in the Valley, Mrs. Charles E. Cowman

As human beings we like to feel like we are in control of our day, life etc… it hurts our pride when we have to admit we need help, and unfortunately sometimes that can carry over into our spiritual lives.
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” -Isaiah 41:10
