I came across this wonderful scripture the other day and it spoke to me of our natural tendency to do things in our own strength. However, when this doesn't work out for us then we have to rely on the power of God. I don't know why we keep trying to do it ourselves, but it seems to be part of our human nature. For Paul and his friends, it was only when they had stopped relying on their own power that they learnt to rest in God's strength.
