I am starting to think that God gives us times of testing because He knows we cant handle it and therefore must surrender and rest and wait and just basically die. In other words God is trying to save us by killing us. Sweet huh?
Psalm 32:4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up....
God had David right where He wanted him. Ever had your strength dry up? Perhaps this was what God was waiting to hear David say...Read Psalm 33 a beautiful Psalm of worship and praise,victory and joy, but had there not been a heavy hand upon David in Psalm 32 there may not of been a glorious Psalm 33.
Religion cant save us. Prayer cant save us. A made up mind is an insult to the Cross of Christ. We tend to elevate all these efforts into little mini-gods. God was not satisfied with anything less than total surrender from His Son Jesus. He wanted Jesus to give ALL on the Cross. He will settle for nothing less from us.
What do you think? Do you think self determination should be a part of our walk with God?
Psalm 33:16The king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. 17 The war horse is a false hope for salvation, and by its great might it cannot rescue.
