Thank You, Jesus, for not giving me

Updated: Sep 13, 2020

what my human-wisdom wants — easIER, but giving me what is BEST for me and the Kingdom. Whatever it takes, to get me from where I am, to where You’re taking me, that’s what I want more than anything else in this world. Thank You that suffering produces perseverance, then character, then hope/faith/dependency/sanity/humility.

Thank You for each time You’ve disillusioned me about the trustworthiness of my human-wisdom. Thank You for opening my eyes to see the many times in my life, I thought my human-wisdom would deliver happiness to me, but it failed me miserably. Thank You that the enemy of my happiness is human-wisdom — my human-wisdom and the human-wisdom of others, especially experts. Thank You that You are the only expert worthy of my trust. Thank You that throughout my life You have ALWAYS delivered what’s BEST for me, even though my human-wisdom thought otherwise. Thank You for Your genius plan for my life that includes the convicting work of Your Holy Spirit EXPOSING my human-wisdom-dependency to me, so I can CONFESS and come running back to You — to dependency on YOU.
