"Lacking time, energy, money - consider yourself blessed. Your very lack is an opportunity to latch onto Me in unashamed dependence... Awareness of your inadequacy is a rich blessing, training you to rely wholeheartedly on Me." (125)
Lack can set us up for a far different perspective on life. It can be much like a pair of glasses that magnifies the challenge and shrinks our ability to make a worthy contribution. We can feel extremely inadequate. This is when I recognize I must exercise "God Confidence!"
"Being confident of this, that HE who began a good work in (me) WILL carry it on to completion, until the day He comes (for me)." (Phil. 1:6) Lack can open the door to a my true Source, God!
My lack of confidence is challenged by God Confidence! Therein lies my highest confidence...
In Him alone...dmc
