Abstract


Every day we must choose who we will rely on. We can rely on ourselves; we can rely on others; or we can rely on God. It’s a question of living by faith or living by sight. We live by sight when we rely on anyone other than God—and we also grow disappointed when they/we let us down. We live by faith when we rely on God—and we never grow disappointed because He is always faithful. When faced with an obstacle or problem, is your first instinct to figure it out and tackle it on your own? Do you immediately think of others you can recruit to help you? Or do you run to God with issue and entrust the dilemma to Him? Relying on ourselves and others is natural; relying on God is supernatural.
