Another way of yoking yourself to Jesus is by acknowledging and demonstrating your dependency on Him.
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
Jesus Himself presents to us the truth of the matter; “You can do nothing without me.” We need to recognize that fact every day. When we do, we will go to the Lord, day after day for His help. It therefore begins with recognizing our dependency on Him for everything.
David acknowledged this truth when he said,
“God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling.” Psalm 49
He also said,
“I cried out to You, O Lord: I said, ‘You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living. Attend to my cry, for I am brought very low; deliver me from my persecutors, for they are stronger than I.’” Psalm 142
“Then I called upon the name of the Lord: ‘O Lord, I implore You, deliver my soul!’” Psalm 116:4
“I will take up the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord.” Psalm 116:13
Trust, is the key to getting the job done. You have to trust the Lord.
“Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.” Psalm 4:5
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
He is faithful. Go to Him for help at every turn, every corner, and every step of the way.
In Christ and in His service,
