Daily devotional: Total dependence on God

Scripture
Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'"
Matthew 4:4 NIV

Observation
Sometimes I get caught up in the things of this world and forget that my very life is dependent not on me and the strength I can conjure but rather on God. And His was do not involve compromising with evil, as Jesus had a temptation to do after Satan offered Jesus food after a long period of fasting.

Application
Recognize my total dependence on God. Thank, praise, worship, and follow Him where He leads me.

Prayer
Lord, You are awesome and holy. Great is Your name in all the earth. By Your great power and wisdom we exist. I worship and praise You. This morning I recognize my total dependence on You, and I gladly submit to You and follow You. I am excited to see what You have in store. Please direct me and use me, Lord. I love you!
