  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

March 4, 2010 - Depending on God

By Dorothy Rugg

Are you depending on God to help you today? Are you completely entrusting your life to Him? The Word tells us in Lamentations 3:40, “Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord” (KJV).

If we are to be dependent on God then we each need to examine our life — we need to see if our lives are lining up with the Word. Consider this evaluation of our lives from the Scriptures:

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

So first and foremost to be dependent on God we must surrender our life to the Lord Jesus Christ. What wonderful blessings await us when we do!

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Being dependent on God makes all the difference in our lives. We are not going to stay the same; we will live a surrendered life to God. Just as Jesus prayed, “Not my will, but thine, be done” (Luke 22:42), we too must surrender completely to what God wants for our lives. Being dependent on God means we will trust Him with our very being, we will trust Him in the midst of our storms, we will trust His Word, we will surrender our lives into His hands.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:1,2).
