Everything we have in this new life is a gift from God, and we access it by depending on Jesus. One of the most beautiful gifts of Jesus becoming human is that He knows what it's like to be one of us. He was "tempted in every way that we were, yet was without sin." Hebrews 4:15. Jesus knows our journey, and He is the One who enables us to live our new life! We don't grow out of dependence. We grow restfully & joyfully as we abide in our Jesus. Be equipped to leave behind your striving and enjoy rest! Get some practical tools to approach life from a place of dependence.
1. In what areas of your life do you feel like you're not manifesting your true self? (Is there a place where you feel like you're "always messing up here", or you always fall short in some area.)
2. Ask Jesus to help you rely on Him right there. In that area.
3. The next time that situation/temptation/whatever it is presents itself, ask for Jesus' help.
