Cup and saucer

We’re depending on God ; he’s everything we need. What’s more, our hearts brim with joy since we’ve taken for our own his holy name. Love us, God, with all you’ve got— that’s what we’re depending on. Psalm 33:20-22

I was created by God to rest upon Him, to depend on Him alone. Nothing can take his place. He has given me his name – I was created for him as a cup and saucer set. When I choose to rest upon him, I understand his loving support and care. That is what I must depend upon.

This also clarifies what I am to do when waiting. I wait not for something to happen or something to come together. I wait for him and him alone. What he does and when he does it, is always right.

Thank you, Lord, for being the one I can rest upon. I depend on you today.
