    Matthew 7:21-23

    Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord," shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?"

    And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness."

    DEPENDENCY

    "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself;
    he can do only what he sees his Father doing,
    because whatever the Father does the Son also does."
    John 5:19

    FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
    My child, your independent spirit sometimes gets in the way of My work. Trust Me to work through you. Dependency on Me is not a weakness but, rather, shows your willingness to obey and exchange your agenda for Mine. I did not say, "God helps those who help themselves." Rather, "God helps those who depend on Him."

    A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
    If You depended solely on Your Father for strength, Lord Jesus, how much more do I need You? When I try on my own, every effort fails. When I depend on my own strength, I am too weak. I desire to mirror You, Jesus. Thank You for modeling the Father. I depend on You.

    SIMPLE TRUTH

    Every believer needs to celebrate Declaration of Dependence Day, daily.
