We seem to have it backwards these days.
We are praying. "Provide for me, so I can trust You."
God says: "Trust Me. I will provide."
We believe in God, but don't really depend on Him. Leaning on God takes faith and trust. Both are difficult to do, unless we take our beliefs to another level.
To depend on God, means to trust in Him to manage your life. We need faith that He will guide us in the right direction, not in some things, but all things.
You have to believe that He can take care of you and your situation.
Many times, we say we are dependent on God, but really depending on our own wisdom and what we know or see.
Gods plans are not always the ones we would chose for ourselves. More often, His plans leave us scratching our heads because they don’t come in packages we expected them.
But they come to stretch us, challenge us and bring things out of us we didn’t know exist.
We choose according to our past experiences and what we know about ourselves.
But God chooses according where we are going and who we are becoming.
Let God work!!
