Ladies Book Study
Have any of you read this book?
The ladies of my church are reading right now, and getting together once a month to discuss it. Last night we discussed chapter two "My Life Is In Your Hands." So very good. This chapter discussed Humility and Submission in relation to God.
In Isaiah God says of Himself:
I Am God.
I alone explain the past and the future.
My purposes will stand, unaltered by any force.
I will do what I please.
I will do what I said I would do.
I will accomplish what I have planned.
The author says, "This is where humility and submission begin: we leave God to act in everything. We acknowledge that our lives are in his hands. This is the threshold from which we step into discipleship."
God is bringing this message over and over lately. I am wondering what He is preparing me for, perhaps just to pass along this encouragement and challenge.
