Satan’s most damaging strategy,
is to get me to believe that my life is mine to live, and that all humans have our own lives to live. But I’m no longer a free man. Freedom is a lie and an illusion, to keep believers in the prison of human accomplishment, the prison of feel-good-about-self-based-on-my-performance.
I’ve been bought with a price, and my life is no longer mine to live. I belong to ShepherdJesus, and today I have no problems and no jobs. All the problems and jobs before me, are Jesus’ problems, and Jesus’ jobs. Except one. My job, is to ask and thankHim about everything, and be curious and expectant to see what He will do next, in me, in others, in my circumstances: what Hewill empower me to accomplish. And when I fail/struggle to do my job — to believe, the enemy wants me full of self-contempt. ShepherdJesus, on the other hand, tells me to simply confess. Ahhh, tis so sweet to trust in Jesus.
–ShepherdDave, needing prayer for fresh conviction of the sin of independence, so he temporarily gives up his prideful ways, and returns to being a happy, clueless, dependent sheep, so the pre-believers around him are wowed by the difference his Shepherd makes in his life, and want his Shepherd too (please pray now)
