Most of my questions of God are "Why?" Like, “Why did You allow this suffering?” My questions reveal my values: comfort and safety. But what does God value?
And knowing that my efforts are not adequate to satisfy God, then how am I to fulfill the many requirements of God on my life?
Christ’s revealing of His Life in me is for His pleasure and purpose, not mine. His revealing is not from our desire, as earnest as it may be, nor through our efforts to have it be so.
Why didn’t God keep that man from pulling the trigger rather than allowing the man to pull the trigger and then watch over him and bringing about some kind of judgment?
I gave God permission to wreck my life when I asked for the miracle of God HIMSELF. I just didn’t know how the answer to the prayer of my heart would look.
The Word declares that if I save my life, I will lose my life, but if I lose my life, then I gain Life. To lose my life is to let Christ’s Life be my life, which consequentially saves my life.
I have some really bad news. My best isn’t good enough. This life is a continual process of proving that we cannot do it on our own.
Christ as me doesn’t allow me to bypass me in an avoidance of responsibility. Christ’s Life is the Light of exposure that beams upon all that is not Christ in me.
There is only one answer to anxiety, stress, hypertension, fear, and trepidation about life.
When I refuse God’s ownership, the only way I can be a Christian is by haranguing self into order. This is anxiety!
Stress is the indicator that we own something we can’t control. Inevitably, we will fret over what we own because it owns us. Ownership is the issue!
Disease and health, like circumstances, are rooted in thought. Sickly thoughts will express themselves through a sickly body.
