I live in constant fear that one of these days he will mean it and walk out on us. I struggle with that fear, because I know that I wasn't given a spirit of fear, but of power.
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father."
I know that I can cry out to my Father in fear, and that He will comfort me, but all too many times, I lean on my own understanding, which fails me every time.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
and he will make your paths straight.
Am I leaning on my Father as I am commanded? Are you? I know that I have a long way to go before I can fully rely on the wisdom of my Lord. First, i need to move out of the way, and let Him work things out for my family.
