Only the desperate are needy ENOUGH to crave

reminders of His total sovereign reign over everyone and everything.  When I have EASY circumstances I am not so desperate to be reminded throughout my day, about the sovereignty of Jesus.  I don’t really need a SovereignShepherdJesus, when I have easy circumstances.  “I can handle this.”  Easy has NEVER done anything for my Jesus-dependency.

When desperate, I don’t have the luxury of feeling ALONE, up to DAVE.  That’s when I need something MORE than a good devotional life: I need MUCH-stronger medicine.  SovereignShepherdJesus reigns.  I’m not MY problem, but His.  And when I THANK Him for the harrrd in my life, I’m reminded that He’s in charge, not Dave.  That He’s executing His genius plan.  And that helps me be curious/expectant to see what He does NEXT in me, others, circumstances.  Ahhh.
