But I rarely hear people say "nothing is possible without God"
How many times do we as humans think we can do things on our own? The truth is we can't do anything on our own. Every breath we take is because of God.
We depend on Him. Whether we like it or not.
We live in a society that encourages us to be independent. To make our own mark on the world. We can't do anything on our own. We are more useful when we depend on God.
Without a strong, unwavering shoulder to lean on (like God) people turn to idols.
We should depend on God more.
