Where Does Your Strength Come From?

With the ACFW hoopla behind me, I’m finally returning to the primary focus of this blog—conversations about characters.

At the end of Deep Cover, the hero realizes that he’s been trusting in his own strength to protect the heroine, rather than God’s. 
Believers often seek God’s help or guidance as a last resort, don’t we?
Or, like me, we go to Him, but… sometimes we don’t stay still long enough to hear His answer.
With so many things vying for our time and attention, oftentimes, it’s difficult to shut out the clatter and just rest in Him.
But how sweet the experience of that rest. 
Your turn: Do you find yourself going to God first, or as a last resort?
