EVERYTHING in dependence on Me. The desire to act independently-apart from Me
springs from the root of pride. Self-sufficiency
is subtle, insinuating its way into your thoughts and actions without your realizing
it. But apart from Me. You can do nothing: that is nothing of eternal value. My
deepest desire for you is that you learn to depend on Me in every situation. I
move heaven and earth to accomplish this purpose, but you must collaborate with
Me in this training. Teaching you would be simple if I negated your free will
or overwhelmed you with My Power. However, I love you too much to withdraw the
godlike privilege I bestowed on you as my image bearer. Use your freedom
wisely, by relying on Me constantly. Thus you enjoy My Presence and My Peace.
