“God is Always Dependable”
Most lessons on dependability begin with teaching individuals to be dependable. As people of faith, we not only need to be dependable to others, we also need to recognize our dependence on God because God is always dependable. We may think of ourselves as independent but in reality, we need God. We are dependent on him for life. He provides love, guidance, forgiveness, and strength. Recognizing our dependence on God is the beginning of our relationship with Him. We needn’t wait until we run out of our resources before we place our challenges in his hands. He wants to be a part of everything we do. By recognizing our dependence on God, we can stay centered on keeping our faith a part of everything we do.
This month, practice dependability by giving God your worries and accepting His Peace.
