Many people want to be totally independent, they want to be able to do whatever they like at any time, they want to be free to make decisions and choices whenever they want without supervision. This is good, because it makes you call the shots whenever. But I briefly want to let you in on a secret, freedom is actually good but your real freedom is guaranteed when you are also dependent. No man they say is an island… man is built to depend on one another. That sounds good, but I’m not here to lay emphasis on depending on man, but “TOTAL DEPENDENCE ON GOD”.
When you depend solely on God, I bet you’ll enjoy complete freedom. Instance, one can take a step that initially looks so harmless which can end up in doom, frustration and trauma. In your decisions, He knows better, He sure knows the end right from the beginning, so count on Him. Some Christians also feel you never take a wrong step when you choose to work for God (The work of the ministry), but even at that, there is what I call ‘TIMING’, even the bible makes it clear that there is time for everything under the sun. So whatever you choose to do, whatever step you want to take… rely on the leading of the Holy Spirit. Don’t try to figure out the way with head knowledge and analysis, when you do this, you place a strong limit to yourself in life. You might want to get into the ministry (which is obviously not wrong) but the Lord might want you to get your hands busy on something before getting into the ministry (seek his will above your own will and plans). Think from the point of view of the bible which encourages you to trust in Lord and acknowledge Him in all our ways, so that your path will be guaranteed. TOTAL DEPENDENCE IS THE LEADWAY TO TOTAL FREEDOM. Whatever it is, ask for his opinion!
