These last several days I’ve been thinking about my dependency on Jesus. I’ve been asking myself if I am more dependent today than previously. This check on my walk with Jesus has been a good exercise for me. Something I need to commit to habit.
John 15:5 and Hebrews 4:16 are helping me with my pursuit.
John 15:5 makes it clear to me its God’s desire that we be dependent upon him. In fact, the verse going as far as to state that apart from Him we can do nothing.
Hebrews 4:16 gives me confidence I shouldn’t be bashful in asking Him for help in time of trouble but rather go to God’s throw of grace with confidence, so that I may receive mercy and find grace in my time of need.
How awesome is this. I just need to be consistent in my dependency on Jesus in the good times and the bad – giving thanks to Him for everything.
5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
