I've often struggled with claiming the promises in the Word as my own. But what I am learning is it is about me because my life is about He not me.
In my life, I have so often believed I had to manage my health. I've been the high priest of my personal health care. I have done as I saw fit and what I wanted.
Health is like a dipstick which reveals the level of our faith in God’s Lordship and Sovereignty.
There is no commonsense to our care; there is only His mind and Will. Utter dependence on God tests our actual faith in God—and our belief in who He is.
The crisis of faith with health care and following the Lord is, “What if I am not hearing Him correctly? What if I die because I didn’t hear?” We all alike struggle with these thoughts.
Being in the Spirit allows us to lean in dependence rather than being strapped with the responsibility to care for ourselves.
I wanted to share another example, one about my own health crisis rather than one I merely witnessed.
I am not the owner of my body or life; I am merely the steward. I don’t have the right or the ability to care for myself.
This post holds a huge lesson about taking care of myself. It's a deep lesson I have to repeat over and over again. Christ is my everything, even my awareness of self.
The truth of Christ in me, as me ia that He is the Source of Life. We often are unaware of who He is impacting through us and how.
I'm not interested in a casual cerebral knowing, I wanted that deep awareness only Christ gives. I needed Him to say, “I see you, John!”
I can easily conceive of my desire to know God, but to comprehend that I am known and seen by Him? Wow, the Lord sees me whether anyone else sees me or not.
