Sufficiency to overcome dependence on Baal

If you are reading this on another day, search for May 30, 2015 on the website.

From the CANON on this blog:


1.    God is omnipotent and therefore can solve any problem.  He may choose to use the solutions listed below, but he often provides in ways you could have never imagined.  The poor should cry out to God for help, rather than depending on Baal.

From today’s scripture reading:

When you bow down before the Lord and admit your dependence on him, he will lift you up.

James 4:10 (NLT)

From today’s devotional:

“Draw near to god and He will draw near to you.” That is an amazing promise! As we open ourselves up to the Lord, He opens up to us. If we come to Him in submission, repentance, and brokenness, He rushes in with forgiveness, love, and faithfulness. There is no room for self-sufficiency or self-protection in this interaction. Only in the humility of helplessness will we discover the sufficiency of His presence.

Many times He uses situations and difficulties to get our attention and stimulate our thirst for Him. What appears to be a painful or desperate situation is often His invitation to draw near.

Have you allowed adversity or failure to pull you away from God rather than toward Him?


God can solve any problem.  We should look to Him for sufficiency rather than depending on Baal.
