RELIANCE (F.R.O.G.)

Standard

Full Rely on God

Fully Relying on God (F.R.O.G.)

2 Corinthians 5:7 – “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”

Reflections: This is a popular phrase these days. I see those cute little frogs everywhere emblazoned with the acronym, F.R.O.G. But how many of us really rely on God as we should? Fully relying on God is not just about trusting Him to deliver us from our mess, though that is a part of it. F.R.O.G. also entails seeking Him first, in all things, so we can avoid the mess in the first place. Our goal should be to become totally dependent on God, pursuing Him with fervor, seeking His guidance in every area of our lives. Before we make any big decision, we should first consult God and pray (then wait) for His direction. In this way, we can ensure that we walk a righteous path, and that God will truly bless the endeavors we ultimately pursue.

Also see:

James 4:13-15 – “Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit’; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.’”
