“Living In Dependence On Me”
Living In Dependence On Me is a glorious adventure. Most people scurry around with their noses to the ground, trying to accomplish things through their own strength and ability. Some succeed enormously; others fail miserably. But both groups miss what life is meant to be: living and working in collaboration with Me.
When you depend on Me continually, your whole perspective changes. You see miracles happening all around, while others see only natural occurrences and "coincidences." You begin each day with joyful expectation, watching to see what I will do. You accept weakness as a gift from Me, knowing that My power plugs in most readily to consecrated weakness. You keep your plans tentative, knowing that My plans are far superior. You consciously live, move, and have your being in Me,
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 9But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 10That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Acts 17:28 28'For in him we live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'
Colossians 2:6-7 6So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, 7rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
John 14:20 20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
Let us pray: “Dear Father, Thank YOU for the glorious adventure of “living in dependence on YOU” daily. Amen”
Let us sing: ALL THAT I NEED IS JESUS TRUST AND OBEY LEARNING TO LEAN ON JESUS LIVING FOR JESUS
