Who do you rely on?

God wants us. Not our thoughts or our words or even our prayers, He wants us to give our life to Him completely. This is a strange idea to some people who have grown up in the church, especially in America, because our culture doesn’t believe in giving our “self” away to someone, not even God. We are taught to be ourselves and be genuine in our desires and our wants. We are taught to be independent and be our own “god” in a way. That is one reason why our country has moved so far away from faith in God. We have been taught to be reliant on only one person and that person is us, each of us.

God provides for each of us every day yet many people don’t recognize it. First, He gives us another day to serve Him when we wake up in the morning. He also gives us the air that we breathe and our ability to get up and move as well. Everything that we mostly take for granted and even believe that we are responsible for having has been given to us by God. If you are a believer, you have been bought with the blood of Jesus. All of us are part of His creation. Nothing in this universe is here by accident. Even the smallest insect is part of the world that we live in. We may not know what their purpose is but God knows.

Your life and mine are helpful to Him in ways that we don’t realize. Particularly, if you are a believer. Those who know you watch your actions and your words to see if you are living out what you believe. You may not know it but they are. Giving your heart and your life to Jesus is the most important decision you can make. It’s more important than a career or marriage or any other decision once you realize that you need Him. None of us would come to Him for our salvation until the Holy Spirit touches our hearts and we realize that we are nothing without Him. I pray that everyone who reads this will seek to be a disciple of Jesus while there is time.

John 3:16 says it best: Because God loved the world (everyone in the world), He gave His only begotten Son. That whosoever believes in Him will not perish but will have eternal life. (paraphrase)
