Hopefully Dependent

I started writing this under the title “Hopelessly Dependent” but quickly realized that was epically incorrect.  The point here is that although I “know” this, I am being daily reminded in various ways that in order to know my Lord and know Him well, I am utterly dependent on His grace.  If He does not reveal Himself to me, I will never know Him.

I struggle with praising Him adequately.  I struggle with understanding what He says about Himself in His Word.  It seems I am in good company.  David – you know, David, the man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22) – David writes in Psalm 25:4 – 5, asking God to reveal Himself to him.  Jesus told His men in John 16:12 that they could not bear what He had to tell them.  He then promised to send the Holy Spirit to lead them into truth, John 16:13.

Without the Lord’s intervening grace, I cannot know Him.  I want to.  It is changing my prayer life.

  1. What amazing grace it is that He WITH us constantly, and His grace is immediately available when I ask (and lots of times when I don't).

    So I know the "truth," but appreciating it is often another matter. I so easily tie it to how I feel. I'm slowly learning that when I drop into bed at night it's because He has answered my prayer of the morning for grace, sometimes moment by moment.
