We are God's packages, which He has taken complete responsibility for handling and delivering.
There's someone trying to lead us. It isn't accidental, it's quite purposeful. They desire to motivate us, guide our decisions, and direct our activity.
I would think that I at least could define my OWN needs…not so much.We are too close to our need to really know what our actual needs are.
This is the bottom line of every exchange with the Lord: Who owns me? Do I belong to Jesus in reality or by mere verbal declaration? Either way, I am owned!
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.
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.
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 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.
