This doodle is pretty self-explanatory–however, I did want to add one thing I thought about while doodling and contemplating what was said today, namely this:
. . . our trust is only in God up to a certain point, then we turn back to the elementary panic-stricken prayers of those people who do not even know God. We come to our wits’ end, showing that we don’t have even the slightest amount of confidence in Him or in His sovereign control of the world. To us He seems to be asleep and we can see nothing but giant, breaking waves on the sea ahead of us. . . .what a sharp pain will go through us when we suddenly realize that we could have produced complete and utter joy in the heart of Jesus by remaining absolutely confident in Him, in spite of what we were facing.
I thought about Paul and Silas in jail–singing! They were calm, confident and hadn’t a fear in the world. Why? Because they knew God was sovereignly in control of their situation regardless of where they were. Think about it, if we really believed God was with us and sovereignly allowing things in our lives, than fear would not come no matter how big the wave. Believe me, waves will keep coming–but they don’t have to be accompanied by fear–God has set their boundaries.
