Spirit Of Entitlement, Or Liberating Gratitude?

July 29, 2015

“Be open to My Spirit. He intends to use your emptiness to reveal the corruption of your proud demand for fullness. That demand justifies your refusal to love others until you feel loved yourself. When your emptiness reveals your spirit of entitlement, that void will become a space within you that longs for My Son on His terms. And brokenness over your demand for satisfaction on your terms will slowly be changed into liberating gratitude for what you see more clearly as amazing grace.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 269

Questions for Reflection:
• How is a felt emptiness in your life exposing a demanding spirit in your heart?
• What kind of person do you really long to be?
• Celebrate the reality that, in this gap between the vision of the person you desire to be and the ways that you fall short of living that out, you are fully known and loved by God because of Christ.
• Offer yourself to Him, opening your heart to hear and follow His Spirit today.
