If you frequently feel BEHIND,
need more hours in the day, you’re just like DAVE, with an agenda for every situation — an agenda rooted in my flesh’s confidence-it-knows-what’s-best. My flesh puts enormous pressure on me not to embarrass myself, not be late, NOT GET BEHIND in my work. Only INdependents have agendas, feel pressure, feel alone, are intense, hurried, impatient, while Jesus-dependents, beloved dumb sheep, just have fun being directed by their SovereignShepherdJesus to the good grass. Ahhh. Jesus-agenda not Dave-agenda.
I’m never a Jesus-dependent except when I’ve been freshly convicted of the sin of INdependence/pride/worldliness/unbelief-in-the-sovereignty-of-Jesus. And it doesn’t last long, because the message of INdependency comes at me from every direction: “It’s normal, human, okay to be INdependent because DEpendency is for children, and pathetic adults.”
