Daily in Your Presence - Feb. 5

Day 36


"I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself;
he can do only what he sees his Father doing,
because whatever the Father does the Son also does."
John 5:19

My child, your independent spirit sometimes gets in the way of My work. Trust Me to work through you. Dependency on Me is not a weakness but, rather, shows your willingness to obey and exchange your agenda for Mine. I did not say, "God helps those who help themselves."  Rather, "God helps those who depend on Him."

If You depended solely on Your Father for strength, Lord Jesus, how much more do I need You?  When I try on my own, every effort fails. When I depend on my own strength, I am too weak. I desire to mirror You, Jesus. Thank You for modeling the Father. I depend on You.


Every believer needs to celebrate Declaration of Dependence Day, daily.
