Rely on God | Tuesday | October 23

And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. –Acts 17:25 NIV

God is independent. The definitions of “independence” include being separate, free from control, support, influence, aid, or the like of others. Part of the implication of His self-reliance is that God will never be overpowered. God can be trusted and relied on. He will not get distracted. He will not and cannot fail.

You were not created to do this life alone; when you try to, there will be a void no hu- man or anything else can fill. Thankfully, you are not alone. God’s mercy is new every morning; His love is never-ending. With each sunrise, you can choose to lean in to an everlasting pillar of strength. He will meet your every need!

Prayer Focus

  • Abba, thank You for your never-failing ways. Help me to rest and trust that You are working, even when I’m sleeping.
  • Father, I ask for Your help in fully trusting Your support. I surrender ___________ to You.
