THE HORIZONTAL FLIP

Photo editing can be quite fun, but also quite deceptive.
You can horizontally flip a photo, causing the right side to become the left,
and the left side to become the right.

While I was thinking about this, the Lord began showing me that this is what
we often do with scripture!

Proverbs 16:3 instructs us to “Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.”
The amplified Bible provides a deeper understanding: “Roll your works upon the Lord (commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable
 to His will, and) so shall your plans be established and succeed.” 

Here’s the picture: we take our plans, like a heavy burden, and roll them onto the
Lord, Who then establishes/ structures them according to His will.
How simple! We start with God first, give Him our plans, and He gives us
the wisdom how to best accomplish them.

It doesn’t happen.

Instead, we do the horizontal flip! We bypass God, go forward with what we think
is great, and then ask God to work it out.

The deception is believing that we are more capable than God to establish
our ideas and make them successful.
Wow! The question is: What would cause us to have more confidence in ourselves
vs trusting God?

Could it be a control issue? A fear of letting go and trusting God? Lack of knowledge
of God- His nature and the truth of His word?

Good stuff to pray about!
