“We do not sit down and dream what we want to do for God and then call God in to help us accomplish it.” (From Experiencing God: Blackaby and King)
“It’s not a question of what you can do for me…what can I do for you, My King?” (Tree63)
I am guilty of these things. I will sometimes find myself dreaming of what I think God wants and then I will ask God for help doing it….
But it does not work that way. We must die to ourself and submit to God and what He is doing. We must die to ourself and let God do what He is going to do (not what we want to do or what we thing He is going to do) and then we must join Him in HIS work!
