How to get peace that passes understanding.

The other-worldly peace that is vastly superior to the circumstance-dependent peace provided by human understanding/wisdom that is always momentary, always fleeting, so the believer is like a wave of the sea, tossed to and fro.  Only Jesus-dependents experience this other-worldly peace.

So how do I become more Jesus-dependent, more DumbSheepDave, more humble, less INdependent, less ShepherdDave, less proud?  Impossible, apart from the Spirit’s freshly convicting me of the sin of INdependence/confidence-I-know-what’s-best.  CONFESSion when convicted, is the starting place for fresh faith/dependency/humility.  I can ASK for the Spirit, claiming the promise of Luke 11 that if we ASK for the Spirit, He will give us His Spirit — fresh conviction of sin.  And it’s good to surrender the timetable in which He answers, because I dunno what’s best for me, and I believe a little bit that my SovereignShepherdJesus DOES.  So it’s also good to CONFESS my unbelief in His sovereign reign over every detail of my life.  Ahhhh.

— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, convinced that Christians — including DAVE, would be way-more fruitful with seculars if we were experiencing more of this peace that passes understanding
