I hope everyone is well!
I’m doing well. It’s been raining and cool for most of the week, and ALL of the weekend, which makes my vampiric little heart just glow with joy.
I was reading in Philippians last week, and the coolest thing stood out to me:
I love Paul’s quiet assurance. No worries, no need to argue, God will clear everything up in due time.
I think a lot of Christians are sure it’s our job to make God clear.
And, certainly, we need to be clear, and teach what we know.
But too many of us think we also have to change those who disagree with God’s word, or at least our interpretation of it.
And that’s a BIG job!
Too big, in fact.
So, I find comfort in the reminder that GOD has that job, not me!
His Spirit is a far better teacher than I’ll ever be:
- he’s got more experience,
- he understands the situation better,
- and goodness knows his motives are purer than mine!
I can tell the truth to any who ask, but then I must rest in the assurance that my work is done, and God’s work is in good hands.
THAT is good news.
It got me thinking. I suspect there are a lot more things that I’m meant to leave up to God. I’ll have to ponder that.
