    I am reminded of walking in the strength of God a , nd not my own. God uses us to accomplish His will. When we walk in our strength, we become angry, afraid, frustration and restless and we hear the voices of others. When we are walking in God's strength, the above occurs, but we don't stay there. He always delivers.
