Today’s Scripture Reading: Romans 15:1-16:27, 2 Corinthians 1:1-2:4

Heavenly Father, I have always been strong, independent and self-reliant. You have used hard times to chisel away my strength and force me to rely on You. The funny thing is I “thought” I was relying on You before those hard times hit. Little did I know…

In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead. And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us. —2 Corinthians 1:9-10

Holy Spirit, in this verse Paul tells us that relying on You is learned, it doesn’t come natural. Like Paul I had to reach the point where no human, including myself could rescue me, before I released control.

Lord, I know I still have a way to go, but I am learning to stop relying on myself and rely only on You.

Thank You for Your grace while I’m learning.

In Jesus Name. Amen and Amen!
