Impossible to be critical,
judgmental, competitive, addicted to feeling superior, and to feel alone in facing my challenges, while experiencing sovereignty-awareness. Whyzat? Because I’m not in charge of me, or others. SovereignShepherdJesus is. Easy to enjoy others and self, just as we are, and His genius plan for us all, when I’m sovereignty-aware. Easy to thank Him for everything, when I’m sovereignty-aware. Easy to be curious and expectant to see what He does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances, when I’m sovereignty-aware. Easy to be clueless-I-know-what’s-best when I’m sovereignty-aware. Easy to experience the peace that surpasses the peace of human understanding, when I’m sovereignty-aware as I go about my daily life. The peace of the sovereignty-unaware is circumstance-dependent — the peace of human understanding, a vastly-inferior peace. And for us Presbyterians — what good is professing to believe in the sovereignty of God, if we’re not sovereignty-aware as we go through our day?
–Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, championing the three awarenesses — Gospel-awareness, self-awareness, sovereignty-awareness, so the seculars around us might be wowed by the Jesus in us believers and want Him too
