How can I tell when I'm Jesus-dependent?

I have momentary sovereignty-awareness -- seeing Jesus behind everyone and everything, so I'm THANKful for everyone just as we are, and everything just as it is, all according to His genius plan, for my good and His glory. I do NOTHing on my own, because I'm being directed by my SovereignShepherdJesus. Curious and expectant to see what He does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances. Ahhh.


How can I tell when I'm human-wisdom-dependent? I feel ALONE and in CHARGE of my daily life, so I feel PRESSURE to avoid failure, mistakes, humiliation. Opinionated. Willful. Uptight. Intense. Hurried. Without joy and peace, unless things momentarily go my way. Addicted to controlling outcomes -- my performance, reputation, goals. Captain of my ship, master of my fate. I know what's best for me, friends, relatives, and everyone else.
