This Week’s Verse: “For I, Yahweh your God, hold your right hand and say to you: Do not fear, I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13 (HCSB)
I don’t know about you, but when I set goals for myself at the beginning of the new year, I try as hard as I can to reach them. One of my goals for this year is to remain dependent on God. Pretty simple, right?
What I knew going into this desire to live my life dependent on God is that I would have to be constantly conscious of this switch of my perception on my life. I had to surrender my life, plans, burdens, and worries over to God daily. And the days I remember to do this are great. I have low anxiety and I’m more willing to roll with the punches. The days I forget to, though, are days of high stress and uncertainty.
I use those days of uncertainty to turn myself back to God, and try even harder to live dependent on Him.
This week, I encourage you to take that step and be fully dependent on God. It’s not easy; it’s a conscious surrender of your struggles and plans for your life. As Chrisitians, we’re called to trust God with those burdens. He’s bigger than our problems, and He can handle whatever challenges you’re facing at the moment. Be dependent on you heavenly Father.
Prayer: Thank you, Father, for your steadfast love and kindness. I’m falling into Your embrace, and I pray you lead me in Your way today. Amen.
