As Christians our dependence is on God , for Jesus said without Him you (we) can do nothing. We live in a world where we tend to look for man and what man has done and prepared to give us answers or solutions.
Name anything, money, health problem, emotional, relational, transportation, communication, education, construction, manufacturing, medicine, banking,politics etc.
Man has been busy developing something, inventing something only to create something that needs some solution. For example the development of cars. See for yourself what it turned into. Am i advocating return to former ways, the days when technology is scarce ?
I believe man's problem is heart and mind problem. God should be first in our mind and heart but when we put Him last we find ourselves overwhelmed with worldly wants which drives us to despair.
Our house in the US are filled with gadgets from man, and i too formed dependence on them. Now my journey back to dependence on God should begin sooner or later. It begins with realization that God started it all and God will continue it for God is in control and we are not.
