Waiting on the Lord seems WRONG
to my human-wisdom, and the human-wisdom of others. Being responsible, taking charge, being an activist, seems RIGHT to my human-wisdom. Waiting on the Lord seems too PASSIVE, while taking charge seems ACTIVE, RIGHT, to my human-wisdom. Jesus-dependency seems WRONG, while Dave-dependency seems RIGHT, to my human-wisdom. The Upside-down Kingdom of Jesus seems WRONG to my human-wisdom, while the right-side-up kingdom of this world — being responsible, activist, can-do, make-it-happen, seems RIGHT to my human-wisdom.
Being confident-I-know-what’s-best seems RIGHT to my human-wisdom, while being dependent, clueless-I-know-what’s-best, curious/expectant to see what Jesus does NEXT in me, others, circumstances, seems WRONG. Waiting on the Lord seems WRONG.
Now for fearful souls, deeply committed to never making a mistake, what faith/repentance probably looks like, is more ACTION. But to us hard chargers, what faith/repentance looks like, is probably more WAITING, which seems too PASSIVE.
