What’s Your Basis For Joy and Meaning In This World?

July 1, 2015

“God went to great lengths to insure our eternal wholeness and joy. But we dishonor His love when we take on the responsibility to arrange our experience of personal well-being, to look to the good things of life and good treatment from others as the basis for our joy and meaning in this world. His call is clear. We are to entrust our well-being to God while we live to reveal Him to others by the way we relate as men and women.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Fully Alive, Page 195

Questions for Reflection:
• In what ways have you been focused on arranging life for your own sense of well-being?
• Is there something specific that God is asking you to release to Him, to allow Him to care for you as only He can?
• What makes it difficult for you to trust God’s heart for you?
• Take some time to confess the ways you cling to a life you can manage on your own terms.
• Thank Him for the fulness of His provision for you, with all of the freedom and rest He offers!
