"For who is God besides the LORD?
And who is the Rock except our God?"
- Psalm 18.31
The act of pressing into God produces a dependency on Him that is vital for healthy Christian life [John 15.5]. Living life independent of God is essentially saying that we all alright on our own, doing our own thing [Isaiah 53.6]; when actually the act of wrestling with Him in our darker moments produces a blessing that we could never receive otherwise [Genesis 32.22-28].
