Dependence

Lord, I have realized that I have been depending on things of this world and other people to feel complete. I didn’t realize how heavily I was dependent upon them until they disappeared out of my life and I was left with just me. I know that you command me to only rely on Your dependence for it will never fail. Help me to remember that man makes mistakes, circumstances are fleeting and things of this world are temporary. I want to rely completely on your strength, guidance, joy and love to live my life. Thank you for always providing what I need to put my feet back on the ground. In Jesus name, Amen.

Verses:
“Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” -1 Chronicles 16:11

“Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord.” -Jeremiah 17:5

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” -2 Corinthians 12:9-10
