Learning to Lean

Psa 39:7

“But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.


No matter how many times we get desperate and finally look to the Lord for our answers, we seem not to learn to look to Him first.  He is our Source.  He knows our needs even before we are aware we have a lack.  What wisdom it would be if we would look to Him first.  We have been raised to be independent.  From the age of 2 we like to say, “I can do it myself.”  We must do as the hymn says, “Learning to Lean.”  This should be the easiest thing to do but our sinful, human nature makes it most difficult.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to quicken in you to look to God first.
