Total Dependence

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding,” (Proverbs 3:5, Holy Bible, New Living Translation).

Some modernists have become so entangled in the independent do-it-yourself mode that it’s encroached into Christianity. While self-sufficiency may be an option for wallpapering a home or maintaining a yard, the writer of Proverbs does not recommend it for heart maintenance. His instruction is total dependence on the Lord.

Prayer:  Lord, in my struggle for self-sufficiency, I try to work things out alone before I talk it over with You. Teach me to trust completely in You.  Amen!
