Taking up where I left off yesterday… He showed me what I was doing… took me back to my own history of trying to do the next big thing for God and finally realizing that all those “things” I was doing, were just opportunities for Him to show me how I was loving being important, getting lots of praise for being a great man of God, etc. etc… so… the assumption was that would be the response of any one in any place of responsibility, in any large ministry operation.
So here I was listening to the speaker and analyzing where he was at, in his journey with God… looking for what was wrong in his heart… sitting out there “being as God”… and deciding what was right and what was wrong with the speaker’s heart. Ugggh…
Yet one more repentance… and the revelation that it has nothing to do with the bigness of anything…. God will use whatever we are doing to mold us into the image of His Son… and He is the one that does that… not philip.
