These are not Dave’s circumstances,
but Jesus’ circumstances. Designed by Him to perfectly meet my needs, His plan, His glory, and my good. Dave is not sovereign over his life; Jesus is. My flesh doesn’t agree, nor the devil, nor the world, and prefers me thinking of them as my circumstances, for Dave to encounter by himself, as an orphan/shepherd/CEO/arrogant/self-reliant. Why? So I am robbed of the joy and peace that’s mine in Jesus, and run around acting like one who doesn’t follow Jesus, doesn’t depend on Jesus. Why? To neutralize me, so the Jesus in me is not contagious to the pre-believers around me. Or believers. He who underestimates his enemy is a fool.
These are not my circumstances, but His. Ahhh.
