Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

Dependence

John 15:5 (NLT)
   “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.


Philippians 4:13 (NLT)
     For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

Father, what an interesting paradox: “nothing   everything.”  Two words that seem contradictory but are in fact valid and true because they express our exact and total dependence on You. Our next heartbeat, breath, step and every aspect of life is dependent on your purpose, power and presence.  

Father forgive our arrogance for thinking we can do life our way with any lasting meaning. Forgive our ignorance for not knowing that you have provided the way to life and living through Your Son. And forgive our reluctance to quickly and wholeheartedly trust and obey Your Words of life.

Father, may we be mindful of Job’s wisdom and learn from his experience life’s most important lesson. “For the life of every living thing is in His hand, and the breath of every human being.”  Job 12:10 (NLT)

Amen
