UNLIMITED DAY 14 (40 DAYS OF PRAYER)

     One of the surprising characteristics of the life and ministry of Jesus to me is not the miracles.  I would expect the Son of God to do miracles.  Instead it’s his dependance.  I would have thought that Jesus would do life on his own.  But instead he models for us a radical dependence on the Father.  In John 5:19 Jesus says “The Son can do nothing of his own accord.”  In John 5:30 Jesus says, “I can do nothing on my own.”  In America and even in the American church we tend to value independence.  When according to Scripture we should value dependence.   Jesus was very busy but He made sure that he had plenty of time to pray.   My strength, power, skill set, and training are not enough to be effective in God’s kingdom and neither are yours.  God must be our source of strength.  Today what are you doing “on your own,” and what are you doing via the “power of God?”

Leaning On Him,
