Day 36

DEPENDENCY

"I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself;
he can do only what he sees his Father doing,
because whatever the Father does the Son also does."
John 5:19

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, your independent spirit sometimes gets in the way of My work. Trust Me to work through you. Dependency on Me is not a weakness but, rather, shows your willingness to obey and exchange your agenda for Mine. I did not say, "God helps those who help themselves."  Rather, "God helps those who depend on Him."

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
If You depended solely on Your Father for strength, Lord Jesus, how much more do I need You?  When I try on my own, every effort fails. When I depend on my own strength, I am too weak. I desire to mirror You, Jesus. Thank You for modeling the Father. I depend on You.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Every believer needs to celebrate Declaration of Dependence Day, daily.
