The Christian learning to depend on God is confident of His relationship. When you know where to go to get the answers, strength or healing you need, you are willing to take risks and make mistakes. When you know God, you also know the Truth, the Way and the Life.

Guidance and Instruction

The Christian learning to depend on God is consciously and unconsciously led by God. He provides whatever is necessary for each situation, drawing us by creating an ever greater need for guidance and instruction. He reveals His heart for us, and for others, inspiring an ever-growing hunger and thirst. He reveals His plans, purposes, and heart, giving us rest, direction and motivation.

God’s Purposes Are Fulfilled

When we are dependent on Him, and let Him do what He wants through us, we know that whatever needs to get done will get done. His plans are endlessly creative, and His strategies are full of mystery, intrigue and adventure. Regardless of the scale, we can rest and enjoy the ride!


Because we know our needs have already been met, we are content in whatever situation God has created for us. His Personal Presence ministers to us directly, assuring and encouraging us, spilling over to others. We end each day as it is begun, focused on His love for us and His wonderful plans for our time here on earth.

May you taste and see that the Lord is good. Each day, each hour, each minute has the fullness of what God intends for you. Grace, rest and peace is your inheritance.

Sow plentifully!
