 In Dependence Day

Today I celebrate not only Independence Day, but being in dependence…..

Dependence on a Saviour who has done for me what I could never do for myself
Saved me from eternal separation from God in hell
Cleansed me from my many, many sins by His own precious blood
Empowered me to live for Him by His Spirit
Oh the list would be endless……..

I must realize daily that I have no resources in myself to live this life, to walk this walk. So I must lean hard on Christ.

and cling to Him in dependence for every word I speak that it might impart grace to the hearers.

and look to Him when I have need as my only resource.

and trust in Him for wisdom in all things, great and small

and lean on Him for the strength to live a life pleasing to Him.

I cannot depend on myself. I can only fall at His feet and confess “I have no help, no strength but You. But You are everything. You are enough.”

Does this make me appear weak? Then I will celebrate this as well. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

May Christ be magnified in my life, not because I am strong, but because His strength is demonstrated through my life. This is my prayer Lord Jesus – that I would truly learn to live in dependence on You.

This is being continually impressed upon me...my great need of my Beloved Christ in every area of my life!

Thank you for sharing this, sister Danielle!

It reminds me of this song:

[b]All I Ever Need is Found in Thee[/b]

Not in words of prayer do I rely;
Nor in songs to be my soul’s supply;
Song of Songs, Thou art to me;
All I ever need is found in Thee.

Not for selfish gain do I seek peace;
Nor for earthly pleasures to increase;
Thou, O Christ, art all to me;
All I ever need is found in Thee.

I need Thy peace and holiness within;
I’ll hide in Thee, O keep me from all sin.
Help me more thy cross to see;
All I ever need is found in Thee.

Christ revealed b His eternal love;
Can there yet be greater joys above?
This my soul delights to see;
All I ever need is found in Thee.

Thou my Shade in a dry and weary land;
I’ll rest beneath Thy strong and mighty hand;
Living Waters be to me;
All I ever need is found in Thee.

When oppressed by fears on every side;
In thy strength alone may I abide;
Thou wilt give the victory,
All I ever need is found in Thee.

Thou my Strength, my Fortress, and my Shield,
To Thee, Saviour, help me ever yield,
Thou art All in All to me,
All I ever need is found in Thee.
Thou art All in All to me,
All I ever need is found in Thee.

Joy, thank you for this song. It is wonderful beyond words. I can't stop reading it over and over.

Bless you sister,
Danielle

 Re: In Dependence Day

DECLARATION OF DEPENDENCE by Glenn A. Hascall

When in the course of my humanity.

It became necessary for me to dissolve the bonds, which have connected me for so long to one who cares not for my ultimate well-being. I first and foremost declare a separation from the one who stated control over my life and of whom I am now certain meant me personal and spiritual harm.

I hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all men are created by God, and are endowed by Him with complete unalienable grace, that among these are the forgiveness of sin, the indwelling of God’s Holy Spirit, and the sacrifice of God’s one and only Son, Jesus Christ.

These truths serve to draw me irresistibly to my Maker. Prudence, indeed dictates that this design, with its foundations lodged in a time long past remembering, can never be revoked and has been set in place to be beneficial to mankind as well as provide our only means to godly living.

When I take note of a long train of abuses by a lesser power seeking to usurp this forever rule and reign I must resist all such efforts. It is my right and duty to stand against such evil and provide ample opportunity for God to secure my future in His loving care and guidance.

The enemy has refused the rule and reign of Jesus Christ.

He has encouraged his minions to meddle needlessly in the spiritual affairs of mankind.

He has refused to acknowledge the laws governing God’s people.

He has made it a personal mission to distract us from following godly principles.

He has repeatedly engaged God’s people in spiritual battle.

For the deprivation of uninterrupted time with God.

For continual accusations of forgiven offenses.

Our enemy has abdicated any rule over us because he has not agreed to the universal law of God’s absolute truth.

He has plundered our churches and ravaged God’s people.

He has lured some away and hold them captive without cause.

He has incited others against us, also without cause both from within and without.

In every stage of these oppressions we have sought relief. Our enemy only answers in the most ruthless of terms. A prince, whose character is continually marked by acts of tyranny and remains unfit to rule.

I, therefore as a representative of the Children of God, do solemnly publish and declare, that the believing members of the Church, one body ordained by God, are free to worship our Maker. I remain a free, yet dependant member of the body of Christ.

This shall remain my once-and-for-all DECLARATION OF DEPENDENCE upon the one true God, His Son Jesus Christ, and God’s Holy Spirit. I further pledge that without my dependence on this source I shall never find joy in my life, fortunes or personal honor.
