How do I know when Jesus is

Updated: Sep 13

Lord of my life — when I’m Jesus-dependent? For me, it’s when I THANK Him for everything in my life, just as it is right now, including the harrrrd — the things my human-wisdom HATES and wishes were different. Impossible to THANK Him for the harrrd with integrity, unless I really believe in His total sovereign reign over my life — His genius plan for me, and everyone else. And when I hesitate to THANK? CONFESS my unbelief.


How do I know when HUMAN-WISDOM is lord of my life? When my circumstances cause me to be angry, frustrated, discouraged, fearful, or bored. When I’m NOT curious/expectant to see what Jesus does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances. When I KNOW what’s thankable and what’s not, BECAUSE my human-wisdom has convinced me I know what’s best. When I’m in a hurry, intense, stressed, impatient, because of my human-wisdom AGENDA. When it feels like my life is UP TO DAVE. Pride, not humility.


The enemy of happiness is human-wisdom. But happy are the Jesus-dependent — the humble.

— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, always needing fresh conviction by the Spirit for his human-wisdom-dependency, so he can CONFESS and momentarily experience the benefit of Jesus in THIS life
