Sunday Verses

God's Word, inspiring verse, truth, bible verse, give us the day, daily bread, http://bec4-beyondthepicketfence.blogspot.com/2016/06/sunday-verses.html
Happy Sunday! I like to think of myself as a pretty independent woman. I enjoy doing things on my own such as killing spiders or building with power tools. Independence can be a good and powerful thing. But, in our relationship with Jesus, we are to be the opposite--dependent. There is a reason God gave the Israelites only enough manna (food) for a day--he wanted trust and dependence. God didn't ask us to pray, "Give us enough bread for the month or the year", but rather He wants us to pray daily for the things we need. I know when life is going well, I get a little independent in my walk with Jesus and forget to rely on Him. That independence moves me away from Him. God wants DAILY relationship, DAILY trust, DAILY belief. One day at a time with God is all I need...

  2. Thank you for the reminder to rely/depend on God on a daily basis. I get a little too far away from Him sometimes and try handling things on my own!! Your posted verse reined me in again!!
    I enjoy your Sunday verses!

    1. You are welcome! Our pastor said yesterday if you preach on your weaknesses, you will never run out of material. I like to write about those areas that I struggle in.

  6. This reminds me of an excerpt from Andrew Murray Year Book (1899) that I look at every day: "The manna of one day was corrupt when the next day came. I must have every day fresh grace from heaven, and obtain it only in direct waiting upon God Himself." Thanks for the reminders!

    1. Thanks Maggee! I am somewhat fascinated with manna, it truly was an amazing thing and represents many aspects of God's character. Have a great day!
