“Listen and be led.” L.M. Heroux
Been praying this prayer….
Been sensing a fight against ‘the neediness that God dependence requires'... typical…pray to hear His voice and then fight it or ignore it or wrestle or question when I do…..Pray and then when it’s answered be surprised…..then this morning this from a casual friend that said
‘Begging God daily is the right place to be. Not to possess anything in myself but to draw the day’s grace as the branch draws from the vine – whether bread or essays or purity of heart. Andrew Murray says it was God’s intention, in creating the universe, to communicate His attributes to His creatures. “But this communication was not meant to give created beings something they could possess in themselves, having full charge and access apart from Him. Rather, God as the ever present, ever living, ever active One….meant that the relationship of His creatures to Himself would be one of unceasing, absolute dependence.” (humility)
In your right mind you wouldn’t want it any other way. Andree’ Seu
The chapter’s in Joshua, a people led by God, living in and under His protection…manna provided daily and IF they tried to get more for another day it was rotten in the keeping…..a people who were guaranteed victory but when they didn’t trust that victory were defeated…a people who were told to destroy everything when they were victorious and IF they didn’t ……a God who wants our dependence in a world that rewards Independence…..
So what am I thinking praying this stuff and then wondering WHY it’s answered?? The point of the journey is to want what God wants MORE than anything……that HAS to be YOU…..
In your right mind……so dependence IS the way You want us and in the bowl I don’t have to worry about it.....out of the bowl I can't breathe without You..... If a tunnel comes will I have the guts to walk into and through it?? Only in dependence.....I am scared I guess.......
