When I have discouraging circumstances,

and I think I need an encouraging development, that's NEVER what I need. Encouragement is what my human-wisdom wants -- so it has HOPE for the future. If I get encouragement in the midst of discouraging circumstances, my addiction to human-wisdom is just strengthened. What I NEED instead, is to CONFESS my unbelief in the sovereign reign of Jesus, who has delivered my discouraging circumstances for MY good, and His glory, to give me HOPE for the future that is dependent on Jesus, not my human-wisdom. Ahhh.


I love it when He fixes my eyes and thoughts on Him.


-- Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, whose biggest need is always disillusionment with his human-wisdom
