that Jesus is in charge of my life, so I don’t have to be, so I don’t need to feel ALONE, feel pressure, feel behind. Truth is, I’m NEVER behind, always right on His schedule. But. Not on the schedule of my human-wisdom. So while my human-wisdom doesn’t believe it, my circumstances are PERFECT for me, for now, could not possibly be improved upon, could not be any-more perfect. But you can’t convince my human-wisdom of this.
Because I keep forgetting, I need a ho lotta fresh conviction of my UNBELIEF in Jesus and His sovereign reign over every detail of my life, so I can do a ho lotta CONFESSing. CONFESSing is the only thing that brings me relief, sanity, freedom, the other-worldly peace that is vastly superior to the peace experienced by human-wisdom-reliants who don’t REALLY believe in His sovereign reign, which leaves us feeling ALONE and in CHARGE of our lives. Reading the Bible is great, but only if the Spirit is USING the Bible, to convict me of the sin/idolatry to which I’ve recently been blind.
