You are not self-sustaining.
2. Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
21. Yea, forty years didst thou sustain them in the wilderness, so that they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not.
I know that the atheist, the agnostic and cult followers all believe that they are self-sustaining, but those who have been purchased with a price - those who have put their hope in Christ - those who have died to self, they trust in God and God alone for their sustenance.
I think all of us have trusted in our self and others for far too long. It’s time we trust in God and in Him alone.
Does that mean we stop working and sit at home expecting God to meet our needs?
No. Everything that God does for us, (by His will) is also by agreement of (our free will.)
The decisions that God is speaking to your heart.
Are you going to:
Remain unchanged - unmoved by God’s Word for you. Holding firm in your resolve to hear the Word of God without having it change you?
Or are you going to turn away and not let what God said become true in you, even though you hear the voice of God - even though you know it is right - even though you know that God is dealing with you for your own benefit - even though you know the consequences of not adhering to what God is saying to you is devastating - will you still turn away?
Or are you going to:
Draw closer to God? And allow God to positively affect your decisions.
Will you make up our mind to allow God to weed out every thing that is not of God, by God or for God?
Will you allow God’s Word to give you the answer you have been looking for?
Will you make a decision for the moment, the day, for your career, your ministry, your direction, your life based on what God is doing in your spirit right now? will you?
