Did you know that being a child of God is not synonymous with being an adult of God? Many people think that when you become born again that your goal is to grow up and live right in your own ability. It is like believing Jesus is just the door to enter into a way of life where you are expected to know and do all the right things at all the right times.
Here’s the truth:
You are not capable of living life all by yourself and by your own power. The reality is, without God, you are weak and basically disabled mentally and emotionally. You are living by a moral code that no longer has any standards these days. There’s no measuring line to tell you when you’ve gone too far or if you are within the boundaries. Anything INDEPENDENT from God is dying a slow painful death—I know that’s pretty intense but it’s true. If He is the source of all life, and He is, how can living disconnected from Him be anything but a slow death? It can’t. Your independence from Him is literally killing you!
In order to live for God, you have to live completely DEPENDENT on Him. You have to trust Him for literally EVERYTHING in your life—this is what He wants. He knows that we can’t do life without Him, He created us to NOT live without Him, so He’s not surprise that we desperately need Him.
Go ahead and let go of all those beliefs that you thought the independent woman was the way to go. How’s that working out for you? I understand that there are positives to not being dependent upon a man, but don’t take it too far and think that means God as well. The saying that ‘God helps those who helps themselves’ is a LIE! God helps those who CAN’T help themselves.
Happy DEPENDENCE day EVERYDAY!
Starting a revolution, starting with you.
