GOD’S WILL IN THE MIDST OF MY PRIDE
Because I have put so much pressure on myself with this learning how to keep the Sabbath holy and through blogging have the world as my accountability partner, I have been spending more time waiting before the LORD. And because of it GOD has been speaking much to me. The SPIRIT shows up more often and I am getting a fuller sense of the magnitude of the Person of CHRIST.
However, the reality is the troughs of pride have put me where I am. I want to do good in front of the whole world, therefore I’m in His presence more.
He arranges circumstances to make me commit. He backs me into a corner and I decide to be obedient to save face. The reason I pursue His will is never noble.
Left to myself I would not pursue anything spiritual. It’s a word picture of GOD dragging me backward by the hair and me digging in my heels. Yet, in this very position I accomplish His will. Does this example leave any doubt that I can do nothing spiritually and GOD must do it all?!
