Be dependent on the Lord.
GM Monday, just posting a short and sweet to encourage you (and me; well, mostly if not all me) to depend on your Heavenly Father.
Truth is, He loves you and is here for you. Whatever you need, He’ll supply it. You need a friend that understands exactly how you feel, a shoulder to cry on, a safe place to be vulnerable and rest? Seek the Presence of the Lord, put your shield down, and go on in. He is all of those things.
“How do I tap in to that place?”, you may ask. The answer is simple: believe. Believe that He is able to help you when you pray. More importantly, don’t cultivate a cold, complicated relationship with Him. He’s your Best Friend, the One that loves you the most! If there’s anyone that you can be yourself and kick your shoes off around (whether your toes are freshly polished or not), it should be Him. He cares. He cares about you.
Just talk, ask Him questions, He understands exactly what’s going on in your heart and what’s on your mind. Prayers that are simple and sweet delight His heart more than elaborate dissertations. They both have their place, just stay real with the Lord; honesty is refreshing.
He’s not looking for you to showcase your answer to the issue nor is He interested in how independent you are. Just need Him. Call Him; He’d love to hear your voice.
2 Corinthians 12:6-10 NLT
If I wanted to boast, I would be no fool in doing so, because I would be telling the truth. But I won’t do it, because I don’t want anyone to give me credit beyond what they can see in my life or hear in my message, even though I have received such wonderful revelations from God. So to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud. Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
