Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better

Ever heard that one?

Ever said that one?

That memorable line, originated in the  Broadway play Annie Get Your Gun, over 60 years ago .  There’s a battle of the sexes, going on between Annie Oakley and Frank Butler.  Each trying to out do the other…

I wonder if God has ever said those words to us?

How many things do we TRY to do on our own?

I’ve seen people try to do everything from fix a relational or financial issue, to earn their salvation.

Here’s a little bit of helpful info for you, STOP!  ANYTHING YOU CAN DO, HE CAN DO BETTER!

Psalm 55:22 says, cast your cares on the Lord, and He will sustain you.   

He really does care about EVERY area of your life.  Allow Jesus to show you how GOOD He is.

If you are TRYING to earn your salvation, again I say, STOP!

Ephesians 2:8 says,  for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is THE GIFT of God.

It will make life A LOT easier when you quit trying to compete with Him.

Believe me, I know.  Been there, done that.  HE WINS EVERY TIME!
