God never intended for us to live independent of Him, making everything depend on us. He created us for a relationship and tells us to come to Him for our daily needs. It is only when we lean on Him instead of ourselves that we experience His supernatural strength and provision.
When we feel alone, we've forgotten God is always with us and has told us He will never abandon us or forsake us, when we feel unable to press on it’s usually because we’ve forgotten to acknowledge God’s presence and power in our lives and our need for Him.
Simply looking to God’s presence and power won’t help us if we don’t truly believe He alone is sovereign, we need to know and believe how mighty God is otherwise we’ll look at our own limitations and limit Him. This is where most people get stuck in their faith, in their walk with a God who is just a little bigger, stronger, wiser than them limited to their own thoughts and feelings.
That makes God small
Ultimately how we live our lives and not what we say is what we truly believe about who God is in our lives, we either live by faith, or in fear, let's not forget we’re not alone in this world, we are made to depend on God and we are responsible for how we live, therefore turn everything over to God and see how He makes things turn out.
God who created all things is capable of seeing us through whatever we face each day nothing surprises Him, nothing is greater than Him, nothing can separate us from Him, we are His and He is ours.
What areas of your life need to be turned over to God today?
God’s word says this:
“Lord, how happy is anyone you discipline and teach from your law to give him relief from troubled times until a pit is dug for the wicked. The Lord will not leave his people or abandon his heritage, for the administration of justice will again be righteous, and all the upright in heart will follow it.”
Psalms 94:12-15 CSB
“Therefore, you should pray like this: Our Father in heaven, your name be honored as holy. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” Matthew 6:9-13 CSB
“I have revealed your name to the people you gave me from the world. They were yours, you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything you have given me is from you, because I have given them the words you gave me. They have received them and have known for certain that I came from you. They have believed that you sent me. “I pray for them. I am not praying for the world but for those you have given me, because they are yours. Everything I have is yours, and everything you have is mine, and I am glorified in them. I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by your name that you have given me, so that they may be one as we are one. While I was with them, I was protecting them by your name that you have given me. I guarded them and not one of them is lost, except the son of destruction, so that the Scripture may be fulfilled. Now I am coming to you, and I speak these things in the world so that they may have my joy completed in them. I have given them your word. The world hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I am not praying that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.
“I pray not only for these, but also for those who believe in me through their word. May they all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us, so that the world may believe you sent me. I have given them the glory you have given me, so that they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me, so that they may be made completely one, that the world may know you have sent me and have loved them as you have loved me.” John 17:6-15, 20-23 CSB
“We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.
What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He did not even spare his own Son but offered him up for us all. How will he not also with him grant us everything? Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies. Who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is the one who died, but even more, has been raised; he also is at the right hand of God and intercedes for us.”Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?”Romans 8:28,31-35 CSB
