"He makes me lie down in green pastures..." Psalm 23:2a, NASB|
We find ourselves spending so much time and spiritual energy fighting God! "I don't want this for my life, God!" It's like we're in an arm wrestling match with the Lord. Do you know who is going to win? Sure we do, GOD IS GOING TO WIN. Raise the white flag now.
We fight Him because we expected something different than what we are getting—right? So let's learn the lesson that David learned after a lot of hard knocks. He learned to say, not, "this is what I want"; but, "My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him." Psalm 62:5, NKJV
My expectations? What do I expect? My expectation is from God. Whatever God wants, that's what I expect. My expectation is of God
