Our Values: Dependence on God
As a Destino movement one of our values is Dependence on God. For us this means that everything we do must be in God’s strength. We don’t want to be busy at ministry in our own strength. We want God to show up.
This means that we need to be people who take risks. If we are content to be safe, we will never live a risky life. We will do things in our own strength. Risk brings about trust and dependence. We know we cannot complete the task on our own.
Dependence on God is still an aspirational value for our team. We are not living it out to the degree that we would like. As tough as that is to say, I think you see it most clearly in our prayer life. None of us would argue that we pray as much as we would want. Prayer is dependence on God. Prayer acknowledges that only He can work.
As we move forward to the fall this is a value we are trying to grow into more and more.
