Dependence

Yesterday and today are busy, busy, so once I again I am sharing an article from my daily devotional.

Do everything in dependence on Me. The desire to act independently-apart from Me-springs from the root of pride. Self-sufficiency is subtle, insinuating its way into your thoughts and actions without your realizing it. But apart from Me, you can do nothing: that is, nothing of eternal value. My deepest desire for you is that you learn to depend on Me in every situation. I move heaven and earth to accomplish this purpose, but you must collaborate with Me in this training. Teaching you would be simple if I negated your free will or overwhelmed you with My Power. However, I love you too much to withdraw the godlike privilege I bestowed on you as My image-bearer. Use your freedom wisely, by relying on Me constantly. Thus you enjoy My Presence and My Peace.

    When we realize and accept that we can do nothing apart froom Him, we are closer to freedom in Christ than when we try to do it on our own.
