Sometimes you hear the voice of God in what you can’t do.
That flies in the face of most of the very good teaching that we’ve heard on hearing God. Usually, hear the voice of God with opportunity. We feel directed to do something based on what door opened, who invited us, what new chance we were given…but if we think that’s only the way He speaks, we could be missing it.
Musician Jason Upton‘s recent tweet sent me into hysterics because it accentuates our ‘must do’ mentality. We live as if to admit defeat is to assume the role of a failure.
Untrue. Defeat happens to everyone, but to really be a failure takes a lifetime.
I spend more time in frustration with what I’m not able to do than I do listening to what God might be saying in it.
I think I need to find that couch.
