"For in Him we live and move and have our being. 'As some of your own poets have said, 'We are His offspring.'"
The GOD of the Bible, who is Creator of the Universe, Giver and Sustainer of Life, Ruler of the Nations, and the One True GOD who is close enough to reveal Himself to those who seek Him. No other words more perfectly express our constant dependence on GOD. He is the original fountain and source of life (Psalm 36:9). Scripture tells us that GOD is the giver of life and breath (Genesis 2:7; Acts 17:25). Humanity owes all the qualities and capacities of life go God. -- Our strength, both physical and spiritual, comes from GOD (Psalm 68:35). "He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the lORD will renew their strength" (Isaiah 40:29-31). These words communicate our absolute and continual reliance on GOD. As we depend on GOD, every move we make should be carried out for the glory of GOD. -- Life is a gift. We owe our continued existence to GOD. He upholds us every moment; He sustains us by His powerful Word. We are all created by GOD, and in Him all things hold together. We cannot exist apart from Him. "In Him we live and move and have our being" means our entire existence is wholly dependent on GOD.
Dear LORD, Thank You for Your many blessings. In the midst of all that is going on good or bad, we need You. Please let your glory fall on our lives. We completely depend on You and rely on Your SPIRIT to guide and lead us and grow us into a life that's consistently found in CHRIST JESUS. Amen!
