Depend on God

  

We are able because God is able. John 15:5 says, “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” Dependence defined means reliance, confidence, and trust whereas independence is defined as freedom from the control, influence, support, or aid. Let’s admit it we all like our independence but the fact is we are can do much more in life when we are completely dependent on Christ. Caroline Buchanan wrote, “When we look to God as provider, we are surrendering our independence and trusting someone else to meet our needs, over which we have no control. Letting go of our ‘dependence on independence’ and letting someone else take control goes against natural human instinct. We need to fight the urge to take over and just let God be God, because He can provide for us better than we can.” So today surrender your independence to the Father and remember you will never know that God is all you need until God is all you got! (2 Corinthians 1:9 LB)
