October 13 Word of the Day: Dependence
Dependence on God is an attitude that says, “I need God.” We are made for the purpose of receiving God into our lives and by praying to Him, we are dependent on His guidance for our life. This is what God wants from us!
This is harder than it sounds. As humans, we have a tendency to want to do things our own way. This is what gets us into trouble. We can look to the Bible for proof that God wants to be a part of our life and will provide for us if we let Him:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
The Lord is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him.Lamentations 3:25
I don’t know about you, but I find comfort in knowing that I have a God who wants to be a part of all that I do and want me to depend on Him when life get tough!
