Psalm 54:4 Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.  

Today, being independent is like a badge of honor. It feels good to say, “I bought my house, my car, and finished school without any help.” For some, they look for ways to be even more independent. They decline help even though it would be advantageous to meeting their goals.

This independent mindset can hinder our relationship with God and limit God’s ability in our lives. God desires for us to depend on Him, but if we’re so used to doing things ourselves, we’ll never reach out and rely on Him. We’ll try to handle our finances ourselves, get ourselves out of situations, get that job ourselves, and work out marital problems ourselves. God never intended for us to do life without Him. He wants us trust, lean on, and totally rely on Him.

Examine yourselves. If this independent mindset has altered your thinking, it’s time to make a change. It may be a process, but start shifting your mindset from independent existing to dependent living.

Psalm 127:1 Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.
