"Will Power"

I have begun reading the book Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster. In the few pages that I have read I can't wait to share with you already what I am learning. Especially in the area of "will power". So many times my method of dealing with sin is by relying on my own willpower and determination. I love the scripture reference (Colossians 2:20-23) that Richard Foster uses to describe ways in which we try to control sin. I find my self repeating at times the phrase "I can do it" over and over again in different situations. The fact of the matter is no I can't. By surrenduring my will to Christ this not only releases my control of the situation but turns my "will worship" into worshiping Him with my obediance. Taking the focus off of self and focusing on Jesus.
