Dear Lord, I haven't done anything wrong today. I have not made any mistakes, spoken any wrong words, or had any bad thoughts. I have done everything right so far. But Lord, I haven't gotten out of bed yet so I am really depending on You.
Haven't we all felt that same way at times? Can I tell you something? That is exactly where Christ wants us to be....DEPENDENT on HIM! Not just for a medical need or a financial need but for everything in our life.
It seems that we have a tendency to NOT see our need for Christ when things are going well for us. But the minute we find ourselves in a crisis of some kind then we reach out to Him and we reach out in desperation.
"At times my failure to see my need for Christ every day upon every hour has caused me hardship and heartache".
If you feel that you are in a place in your life right now that you KNOW that you cannot take another step without the Lord's help then also know that He has you right where He wants you right now. WHY? So you can depend on HIM!
During the times of my life that I've had a desperate need for Christ I have spent my sweetest most intimate moments with Him. SOUNDS crazy I know. But it is during those times that I have truly DRAWN NEAR TO HIM!
Why does it seem to be that way for us?
The sweetest thing is that He is always there for us! He wants to accomplish great things through us and through our situation and He only does that through a life of faith on our part. He wants our individual attention because we cannot do things on our own! No matter what it is!
Don't think for a minute that God has forsaken you during your greatest time of need. Matter of fact He is leading you every step of the way!
Isaiah 30:21 says: Your ears shall hear a word behind you saying, this is the way, walk in it".
May we learn daily to depend on God...we need Him every hour, every minute and every second of the day.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
