End of Self is the Beginning of God
As long as we are self confident, we will not be strong believers. Why? Because we think we can handle things. Any dependence on self will dilute our total trust in God's power. It's only when we put faith in what the Lord has done for us, independent of what we deserve or can do for ourselves, that we begin to experience the consistent victory that faith can produce.
