Diligent Dependence


Diligent Dependence:

"So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then." (1 Peter 1:14)

If I even begin to glance back at the place out of which I've come (that deep, dark detriment), I've already fallen... The key to decidedly demolishing my destructive addictions is to diligently depend on my divine Saviour.

No turning back. This is the new. This is living now. All for Him. My everything laid down, so I won't turn around. I'm committed to Christ, and this is my life. This is who I am now - completely His, and complete in Him.

Release and Receive


Release and Receive:

"My child, listen to me and do as I say, and you will have a long, good life. I will teach you wisdom’s ways and lead you in straight paths. When you walk, you won’t be held back; when you run, you won’t stumble. Take hold of my instructions; don’t let them go. Guard them, for they are the key to life." (Proverbs 4:10-13)

Come, dear child, come receive My grace and strength for your every need - your every weakness. I will carry you to a new beginning. I, your Great Redeemer, can restore to you the joy of living life unhindered. No longer will your muscles ache and body cry out - dying and wasting away. I will prosper you, I promise you. Trust Me. Walk with Me. Come take hold of My gracious gifts. I withhold no good thing from you. Therefore, you're free to abandon all that you try to control in your own strength... Release and receive... I have an amazing plan for you. Your trusting obedience is the key that unlocks the door to these never ending blessings. Trust Me, for I am on your team and I will never fail you.

Rise Up and Pray


Rise Up and Pray:

"At last he stood up again and returned to the disciples, only to find them asleep, exhausted from grief. “Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation.”" (Luke 22:45-46)

Don't give in to all the grief. Rise up and pray in the power of the Holy Spirit! Don't become so worn and weary from the battles surrounding you that you throw in the towel and call it quits. Instead, call on God! Pray relentlessly because He's not left your side. His ear is still tuned to your cry. He's not going to stop fighting for you. Be still, call upon His Name, then you will receive peace, joy, and a renewed hope once again. This battle may not be over yet, but I can assure you: the victory is already won and we are triumphant!
