I need more disillusionment
with the benefits of somebodiness, achievement. I believe deep in my soul, that I can find happiness somewhere other than Jesus-dependency. Why would He give me the desire of my heart – to feel good about myself based on my performance, even in ministry, if the desire of my heart is for something other than Himself? If He’s the means to the end, not the End? Well, maybe He would prosper me, to expose to me the folly therein — the emptiness compared to Jesus-intimacy.
I have today, all I will ever need, relationally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially. I need nothing more. But now and then, the enemy snookers me into believing a lie, that something more, would provide me more happiness. Lies believed by ShepherdDave.
