God Will Do It
I Thessalonians 5: 24
The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.
A two year old is independent. Countless times a day a toddler can be heard saying, “I can do it!” A simple task, such as putting on clothes, takes forever when they insist upon doing it themselves. Isn’t that the way we are with our Heavenly Father? To our Father, who is faithful and has promised us He will get us through this world, we say without any hesitation, “I will do it myself."
Of course, we need to let our child grow and learn how to do things by themselves, but we as Christians, need to be 100% dependent on God for everything in our lives. Our goal should not be to be as independent as possible, but the opposite, as dependent as possible. Every breath we take and every decision we make should be in complete dependence on God. The closer we walk with Jesus, the easier it is to live that type of life with God. Our dependence on God is directly tied our walk with Him. If we are not seeking after Him, reading His word, praying without ceasing throughout our days, then we will find ourselves in an independent state.
Maybe today you need to take an assessment of how independent you are as a Christian. God is a gentle God and will never force His way into your life—you will have to seek Him out. Jesus said, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me,” (Revelation 3: 20).
Father, Thank You that You are faithful! Thank You that You are patient with me and all of my independent ways. God, Your love is never failing and full of grace and mercy. Strip me of my independence so I am fully dependent on You for all things. Thank You for loving me the way You do and for never giving up on me.
