WHAT DO YOU DO? Complain, clam up, or commence your OWN solution? God says, it is NOT by works of righteousness which we have done (Titus 3:5) and there is NO king saved by the multitude of a host: a mighty man is NOT delivered by much strength (Psalm 33:16).
If we try painting the well it does not change the water. Every time we work the pump we bring up more of the same water. As we draw upon our own human resources, they are never more than our own human resources. Our working cannot rise above its own level. But to him that WORKETH NOT, but BELIEVETH on Him that justifieth (act of declaring a person righteous) the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness (Romans 4:5). For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9).
