Declare your dependence

Stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you.  I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Hos. 14:8

Things we enjoy can become idols if we look to them as sources of happiness, security, or comfort. Not only are we not designed to depend on our idols, we aren’t made to be self-sufficient either. We are God’s dependents, beautifully needy, nourished and restored by his extravagant love.

Lord,  I’m depending on you.
