Before we know the Lord, we seek independence. Once we know and believe in the Lord, we learn to live a life of dependence upon Him, from faith to faith. The more we rely on Him, the more we find we can fully and consistently trust Him—in and for everything.
We rely on God for answers to our specific requests and for the unknown in every situation. We count on Him to watch over all that concerns us. Often He has handled an issue before we even knew there was one. Depending on God means we count on His knowledge of all things and trust our Father always knows best. It’s not depending on what He is going to do as much as depending on Him as omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent. He works all things together for good as His purpose is established far better than we could ever ask or think. It is His amazing goodness.
Whether or not we know what we are waiting upon the Lord to do in our lives, let’s rest in trusting His loving care. When thoughts come to walk by sight and question His ways, we take every thought captive and rest assured, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” We can rely on God’s grace, from glory to glory!
Psalms 73:23-24 “Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel, And afterward receive me to glory.”
