DEPENDENCE ON GOD – 6/30/13
I came across this devotional from Jesus Calling. A powerful message. A powerful reminder to trust and rely on God in all circumstances.
Let My Love stream through you, washing away fear and distrust. A trusting response includes Me in your thoughts as you consider strategies to deal with a situation. My continual Presence is a promise, guaranteeing that you never have to face anything alone. My children teethe on the truth that I am always with them, yet they stumble around in a stupor, unaware of My loving Presence all around them. How that grieves Me!
When you walk through a day in trusting dependence on Me, My aching heart is soothed. Gently bring your attention back to Me whenever it wanders away. I look for persistence—rather than perfection—in your walk with Me.
But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
