Independent yet dependent on God. I always wanted to be independent of my needs till the time I could recall.
Living under authority, authority of God and/or ruler is one thing we have to learn.
Being Self- dependent is everyone’s dream.
Being called the son of God, I am humbled and fortunate. Even if it is only for the comfort, I’ll go for it. But it is far beyond it. And I can’t earn by myself.
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (1 John 3:1a)
I become a son dependent, of free will, yet deeply depending in the abiding grace of my Savior and Lord -Jesus Christ!
