Do not trust in noblemen, in mortal man, in whom there is no salvation. His spirit departs he returns to the earth; On that very day, his plans perish. Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God. Psalm 146:3-5
Playwrite or Actor
Do you find yourself in the rabbit hole of worry?
Are you constantly trying to manipulate outcomes instead of just the inputs?
Do you sense that if things were to go your way, all would be right in the world?
Do you tell yourself that if people would just listen to you, their lives would be better?
Then you may be a Theomaniac.
Theomania-The desire to be God. Acting as though you are the playwright instead of the actor. Norberto Keppe
If there is one thing that a Theomaniac desires is to control everything in their lives and the lives of others.
There is only one antidote for our illusion of control.
That is to trust in God only.
That means that we trust He is a Father.
If we allow the Holy Spirit to search our hearts, we find that the root of our faithlessness is that we do not believe He is good.
He is Good.
We can trust His story.
When you ask God to examine your heart, He examines and heals you to restore you back to perfect health.
Perfect health is fully living in His love.
What plays have you been trying to write into your life?
Lord, we give up trying to do Your job. It is exhausting! It really hasn't worked in our lives or those You have entrusted us to love. Now shine Your love abroad in our hearts to intimately know You and show You to others. Amen
