Now, based on our past mistakes, screw-ups, and failures, human willpower ought to feel like the weakest and least reliable substance in the world. In other words, I know where
willpower has gotten me previously, so, “me relying on me” should sound like a bad idea every time. But is doesn’t.

Now, here’s where it gets tricky. Willpower by itself can’t do very much. But our decision-making power, that is, our capacity to actively choose one thing over another, moment by moment, is incredibly important.

Let’s break that down. God can do amazing things in and through us when we decide to involve Him in the process. When we start asking God, “Where do you want me to go, and how do you want me to get there?” miraculous things start to happen.
