Revel for a moment with me in God’s goodness.
Can you go there?
Will you go there?
God has promised to provide my every NEED.
He will show HIMself strong when I am made weak.
My Lord is actively in the process of orchestrating every detail of life as it needs to be…RIGHT NOW!
Did you catch that?
I know I don’t much.
However, I also know that my sight is so short,
so fogged over,
so caught up with what shade lenses I have in front of them at the moment
that I lose all God-vision.
And that brings me to a place where I buy into lies.
I doubt God’s promises and question my identity in Him.
I fail to carry out any form of effective ministry.
I produce nothing but sin.
It is in those moments that I choose to make mySELF so big and my God so small.
Glorifying my image is the goal vs. allowing mySELF to be used by Him to demonstrate HIMself.
Why am I so amazed that when I simply discipline mySELF, God grants me the wisdom and truth He has already promised to give me?
Because I make it all about ME.
