what is contingent in you life?
what are you leaving up to chance?
in seeking out an answer to the "what now?" question, i have found there is a fine line between contingency and action. what in our lives should be contingent, if anything?
i think that lately, it has been easy for me to believe that whatever happens, must just be what is supposed to happen. that there isn't necessarily a rhyme or reason...that if it doesn't work out, then hey, must not have been right.
but i am now choosing to believe that it all stems from a heart issue.
where are my desires coming from? selfishness or true surrender?
for the Lord has plans for me, this is true. plans to prosper me.
but i think he also wants me to make a move. to choose action and allow him to work through that. by leaving everything up to chance and circumstance, i am not giving God the glory. i am robbing him of credit, because i am leaving everything too vague.
if the bottom line is:
God so loved the world.
we are to love our neighbor as ourselves.
there is no other God before Him.
then nothing is uncertain. the only thing our plans are contingent on is:
does this glorify God?
does this point to Him?
does this give Him all credit?
for God is all we should be dependent on.
