Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Rely.

Rely >>> “to depend confidently; put trust in” (from

The definition says it well for there is only One upon whom we can depend confidently and put our trust in.

Who is among you that fears the Lord, That obeys the voice of His servant, That walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God.” (Isaiah 50:10, NASB)

There are days, perhaps even today, that we feel like we are walking through life without even a bit of light. Like we are feeling our way through the dark. The answers we seek have not come but there is One who will lead the way, who has gone before us.

Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.”
(Psalm 50:15, NASB)

On those days, we can call on the Lord. We can rely on Him to hear us, to provide answers, and rescue us from circumstances that bog us down.

And the wonder of it all is – we get to do it again each and every day.

“Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.” (C.S. Lewis)

We need Him.
We need Him more than we even realize,
for we need Him every hour.
