THIS life is difficult, specifically when we’ve agreed with God that we’ll live it His method. That’s because, in being open to whatever life throws at us, we not settle for own reasons, and we watch out for and not accept our old actions of sullen hubris.
It takes us a very long time, and normally a pivotal moment, to reach the conclusion that living God’s way, with gospel abandon, is the only method; the mode of the ancients of the Bible. Jesus, He is to be understood, is an only way. Jesus plus anything renders annulled the eternality we would otherwise possess. Jesus plus anything else is nothing close to Jesus.
Resolve is something, and it’s a tremendous ally when we’re strong in our weak point, but when we’re weak in our weak point, solve turns rapidly to retribution.
Yet, being weak in our weak point has to do with discovering our raw spiritual condition. We require a right evaluation. Becoming aware is requirement to change. But it’s particular that some realities look like excrement.
At the very time we’re considering giving up, hogtied by circumstances the mind can not fix up, a heart rallying yet wallowing, support is needed. Godly support always comes from unexpected sources at times that are sudden but tarry.
Here is the core. Blessed with the eternal Existence of God, in and all around, is the individual who has actually left their life to follow the life that Christ has produced them. They need not hope to the Lord for this to occur for them, or that. Their prayers are much better put for others.
Doing His will obtains to you the will of Him who will abide in you, through you, and for you, as you abide in Him. There is no greater, no purer motivation to continue along the course of obedience than God’s inescapable, sustaining, undeniable faithfulness.
