Strength for Each  Day

Depend on Jesus

According to John 15:1–8, Jesus is the vine and we are the branches. He tells us that as we abide in Him we will bear much good fruit, and that apart from Him we can do nothing. We should read and meditate on these verses often because we have a tendency as human beings to be independent and self-reliant.

As you begin any project or task, take a moment to tell Jesus that you are depending entirely on Him for the grace, wisdom and strength to do it. This ensures that you will do it with His help rather than laboring in your own strength and abilities. 

Any burden is lighter when it is borne by two instead of one; therefore, I urge you to ask for and receive all the help you can from God, who never grows weary! Then, after having successfully completed your task, remember to thank God for His help.
Pray: “Father, forgive me for all the times I have labored in my own strength. I recognize that I need You at all times, and I want to abide in You so that I may bear good fruit. Thank You, in advance, for giving me more than enough strength, wisdom and creativity to carry out the tasks ahead of me. Help me to always lean and rely on You. Thank You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
