I said I’d never be that person…
The one who goes to a restaurant so often that the staff knows you by name and can place your order before you open your mouth.
Well, that is who I’ve become.
She knows both Keith and I by name and she knows us well enough that we share some life events with her.
“Congratulations on the promotion!” she said with excitement, “You two make me proud”.
“So what’s the formula”, she asked
“Loads of prayer”, I said with a smile
Looking back at me as she walked us to our table, “Oh no let’s not turn this thing that way because it’s actually YOU two who are DOING all of the work”
She dropped the cutlery set on the table and took off smiling…
I was thrown off a bit…later I kept thinking about her last words…
That has to be the longest living lie ever!
The lie that in and of ourselves we can accomplish anything
It’s the same lie Satan told Eve in order to convince her to disobey God…“and you will be like God” (Genesis 3:5).
C.S. Lewis once said, “Even in “good, decent people,” the illusion of self-sufficiency must be shattered”.
My prayer this morning is that we will allow that lie to be put to death by the truth found in these words…
“Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as if it were coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God” (2 Cor. 3:5)
