surrendering self-dependence


devotional post # 2027

Luke 18:24-27

Luk 18:24 After Jesus noticed this, he said, “It is so hard for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!
Luk 18:25 In fact, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.”
Luk 18:26 Those who heard this said, “Then who can be saved?”
Luk 18:27 He responded, “What is impossible for mere humans is possible for God.”

surrendering self-dependence

Wealth tends to create an attitude of self-dependence since money can actually solve so many problems. But this self-dependence is a minus when it comes to kingdom living. Kingdom living requires God-dependence. If you have been blessed by riches, turn to God and let him provide what you cannot — even with your wealth. It is possible for God to save you and reign in your life. It will take a miracle, but he knows how to do miracles.

LORD, we surrender our self-dependence to your sovereignty.
