Will God really come through for me?

Can I really trust Him with every area of my life?
Dependence on God is the starting point for every area of our lives.
2 Chronicles 16:7-9
“You relied on the king of Aram and not on the Lord your God”
We suffer from spiritual amnesia. We forget what God has done for us when we relied on Him.
When we forget what God has done, we tend to rely on ourselves rather than rely on God.
When we forget what God has done, we tend to rely on ourselves rather than rely on God.

When that happens, there will be consequences.
We never outgrow our dependence on God.

When we fail to depend on God, we’ve chosen to settle for something that is less than what God desires for us

“Self-reliance is a subtle cancer of the soul because it slowly replaces our dependence on God with our dependence on our own ability and resources. Unlike other temptations, the more experience we gain and the more successful we become the greater we feel the lethal pull of self-reliance.”
-Mark Jobe
Has self-reliance replaced your dependence on God?

Do you look to your own abilities and resources before you look to God?
