You don't need sovereignty-awareness

unless you have rugged circumstances, and then you will be absolutely miserable without it, because your focus will be on the waves of your circumstances, not Jesus. When life is easy, you can get by without sovereignty-awareness, but the downside is that you will be operating with human-wisdom, using puny human-power, just like any atheist -- seed cast on thorny soil, choked by the cares of this world, unable to reproduce. And circumstance-dependent for your joy and peace.


So what can you do to increase sovereignty-awareness as you go through your day? Pay attention to your thoughts, feelings, reactions, so you're more AWARE of what's guiding you, so you realize when you're feeling ALONE and in charge of your life, so you can CONFESS your human-wisdom-dependency -- your unbelief in His sovereign reign over every detail of your life. Ahhhh. Confession is sanity.
