Dependence is not defeat

IMG_4800

We often depend on our own skills and abilities when life seems easy, but when we feel powerless to help ourselves, we turn to God.  We must recognize that even when life seems easy we are dependent upon God, for He upholds the universe with His power.  Dependence is not defeat, but the realization that our source of truth and power is God.  With this attitude, problems drive us to God rather than away from Him.  Learn how to depend on God daily.

Commentary from The One Year NIV Devotional, April 17.  Tyndale House Publishers, 2003.
