Every disappointment is a love message
from Jesus to undermine your trust in your human-wisdom. Your human-wisdom does NOT know what’s best for you, but it has you convinced it does, and so does the human-wisdom of others. Especially experts. Jesus knows what’s best, and will deliver the best, but you don’t believe that, so you need further retraining, further disillusionment in the trustworthiness of your human-wisdom.
Jesus knows you’ll be way happier trusting His-wisdom, His-leading, because He created you a dependent, not an INdependent. You’re His adopted child, no longer an orphan. You were made for Him, not for yourself. He loves you best when he retrains you in a better way of living — dependent on His-wisdom, not your-wisdom. And. You’ll be way-more fruitful with seculars, trusting His-wisdom, enabling you to operate with His-power instead of your-power.
So, how do you trust Jesus-wisdom more? CONFESS each time the Spirit makes you aware of your self-trust — your disappointment, your confidence-you-know-what’s-best.
