Patience: You Are Not In Control

14 Jan

A few weeks ago, I came across this blogpost on theResurgence by David Dorr. The main idea of the blogpost is the following:

“Patience is the settled reality that we are not in control.

Patience is the settled reality that we are not in control… The Spirit has been graciously calling this insight to mind frequently since then, especially in the darkest of moments. Patience is the settled reality that we are not in control.

By God’s grace, I am beginning to see – not clearly enough! – how this Scriptural insight, namely, that we are not in control, is good news. It’s good news precisely because I am, by God’s grace, beginning to see how not in control I am. And it is then that verses like Philippians 1:6 and Psalm 40:11 make sense – but not only make sense, but also begins to stir my affections for Christ.

Patience is the settled reality that we are not in control.
