Summer of Dependence
May 1, 2019
I started and stopped this opening encouragement multiple times. As I stepped away last night and began preparing for bed, I prayed and asked God what He wanted you to read. After all, I serve at His pleasure and for His glory. It is His message and my job is to be a yielded deliverer of it. I was reminded that I am called to dependence. Here's the thing. Dependence is hard for me. I lean toward self-sufficiency and independence. If I am not careful, God becomes an afterthought to my checklist mentality. The satisfactory feeling I have from accomplishing something becomes an idol that replaces seeking God's will, waiting on God's timing, and giving God the credit! What about you? I am prayerful we each make this summer one of greater dependence! May Psalm 62:5 (pictured below) be our daily prayer so that it becomes a daily declaration! Because when we choose to depend on Him then we can enjoy the peace that comes from the truths expressed in verses 6 - 8.
