"View problems as opportunities to relay more fully on Me...your needs become doorways to deep dependence on Me, and increasing intimacy between us." (137)
The devo for today is profoundly impacting. Our secret door to "increasing intimacy" with God lies not in what WE can DO for Him...but in what HE can DO WITH us when we are overwhelmed with problems and feeling most needy! Who would have guessed that these "afflictions" (2 Cor. 1:3-11) are protecting us from the "idolatry of self-reliance." Idolatry will keep us out of heaven...intimacy will make us feel at home in heaven!
