The problem with getting my way,

is that I become addicted to getting my way. Addicted to human-wisdom-dependency, which is a Curse, a prison, the opposite of Jesus-dependency, and the reason I function as seed cast on thorny soil, choked by the cares of this world, unable to reproduce.


Who can rescue me from human-wisdom-dependency? Only the Spirit of Jesus, opening my eyes afresh to see the problem, so I CONFESS my unbelief and am momentarily returned to sovereignty-awareness/Jesus-dependency, where my eyes and thoughts are fixed on Jesus, curious and expectant to see what He does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances. Ahhh.
