The excitement and joy of living in relationship with God is the gift of believing in him.
Being in relationship with him. Trusting him. Hoping in him. Having confidence in him. Knowing that he has made me, he loves me and he has my back no matter what.
If I try to foolishly and feebly control, run and bulldoze over him to run my life I always lose.
I lose the joy of seeing him meet my needs in his timing, in his way.
I lose the joy of sharing those moments of dependence with him.
I lose the excitement in beautifully believing in him.
I lose relationship with him.
I don’t want to lose. I want to win. With God.
