Irony: God has complete confidence in me, though I am as predictably changeable as the tide, ---while I refuse to put my complete confidence in Him, who is absolutely and unchangeable trustworthy!
Why does He have such confidence in me? Because He knows how He made me and what He made me for—and He knows that HE is IN me to do that which He purposes—even though from every human standpoint it is impossible!
The God of the impossible is IN me to bring me from unbelief, rebellion and selfishness into the likeness of His own Son in character and to elevate me to a place of partnership with Him-- the King of kings over the entire universe and beyond! How laughable, how ridiculous a plan! Yet He has determined to do it and it WILL come to pass!
Prayer: O God! Thank You for the magnificence of Your plan! Thank You that (like a Dad with child in lap) You place Your mighty hands over mine on the ‘steering wheel of my life’—You enable me to direct my choices so that I am heading in the right direction….I am heading for the fulfillment of Your plan of partnership for eternity!
Thank You that it is not up to me—I gladly surrender my will to Yours—You Whose plans exceed my feeble imaginings for myself as much as the space station exceeds my helium balloon! Thank You that You have promised to do it all to bring me to Your end!
Thank You that You are faithful to forgive and cleanse me of all unrighteousness = all my thoughts, attitudes and ways that are out of agreement with You! Wash me of the old entrenched patterns of unbelief about who I am and Who You are for me—so that I can fully embrace Your confidence in me and respond with TOTAL confidence in You, Your plan and Your ways!
Teach me Your ways, O God! that I might be a joyful participant in Your preparation and training of this child for the incredible future already written in my DNA and on the scroll of my life kept hidden in Your heart!
I choose to position myself under You—facing the way You want me to go, directing my efforts in alignment with You so that all that I do is fully submitted and therefore fully enabled!
