When a major storm comes through, it can be devastating. The electricity may be out for a week, and the roads are often closed because of flo...

    Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can't bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:4'5 WEB....

Lean On Me

  • He has said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me. Therefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in injuries, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then am I strong.' 2 Corinthians 12:9 WEB

    So many times in life I have had to face complex problems which I did not understand or know the answer to. It seemed that God would arrange situations where there would be no one else to turn to but Him. This was before the Internet became available, and people called me for answers, that I sometimes did not have. Of course there would always be pressure to fix the problem, and sometimes when I had exhausted all of my abilities and ran out of ideas, panic would start rising inside me.

    Finally I would take a break, calm down, walk outside and pray for a few minutes. Then the answer would suddenly come, and the problem would soon be resolved. Jobs where I spent some time in prayer first, often came off without a hitch, but men hate asking for directions, and it was the times that I began growing cocky and felt like I could handle it that always got me into trouble. Paul said that when he was weak, he was actually strong.

    I can see now that God was saying: 'Lean on Me.' He intentionally put me in high pressure situations with no one to turn to but Him, and He always had the answer. We never walk alone as a Christian. We are to be dependent on the Lord every step of the way. The Holy Spirit can teach us 'all' things (John 14:26).

    God lives inside of us and He wants to be a part of our lives, but often we get too busy to inquire of Him though He is right there. Jesus said: 'But when they deliver you up, don't be anxious how or what you will say, for it will be given you in that hour what you will say. For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you' (Matthew 10:19).

    This verse reveals a few things:

    1) The Spirit of our Father lives inside of us.

    2) 'It will be given you in that hour' is the answer that we need.

    3) We should not be anxious. It actually can cause us to be spiritually deaf. We must calm ourselves and get quiet to hear that still, small, voice.

    Lean on God for the answer, He has it. Include Him in your day. While you look everywhere else and exhaust all of your ideas, He is there patiently waiting for you to ask. The Holy Spirit that helped create the universe is available and can help you with this if you will only take the time to ask Him.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I lean on You! Please teach me Lord what I don't know. Help me to see the bigger picture. Walk with me and talk with me today. I want more of Your presence in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I've been feeling this way for awhile. The last thing I heard Him say outloud(ish) was "I'll be with you" lol/sniff. He makes Himself evident... But it's very strange sensation to feel more awake than everyone around me while at the same time way more aware of my blindness than I've ever been. ♡
