Depend on God

We often say we depend on God; but when trouble arises we try to lend God a helping hand. God doesn’t need our help; He just needs us to be obedient.  There will come a time in our life when money, who we know, or the influence we think we have will not get us out of our predicament; especially when family and friends turn their backs on you. “Look to the hills from whence cometh your help, all your help comes from the Lord,” we have to depend on God.  Moses had to depend on God from the time he was born, death of male children, the River Nile journey, living in Pharaoh’s House, living on the back side of the mountain, the Exodus, the wilderness experience, and death. Moses’ life was one of dependence after another.  God had given Moses an assignment to deliver the children of Israel from bondage, although he had an excuse God said go.  When God tells us to go, He has already made a way and He will give you the words to speak.  “Now when they bring you to the synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how or what you should answer or what you should say.  For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that hour what you ought to say”.   The key is being obedient to the Spirit and dependence on God.

One Sunday I forgot and left my briefcase at home which contained my Bible and sermon for the day.  There I was sitting in the pastor’s office minutes before preaching time and I asked God what do you want me to preach?  He said depend on me. He directed me to the Book of Exodus and His servant Moses. God told Moses to go, that was my cue to pray and make my way to the sanctuary depending on God.  That Sunday I preached one of the best sermons God has allowed me to preach, because I was totally depending on God. 

God, help us to depend on you in every situation of our life.
