"Lord, I Can't Wait To See What You Are Going To Do Today"

Chris DeBaggis, a former team member at Man in the Mirror, prayed at one of our prayer retreats, "Lord, I can’t wait to see what you are going to do today." At that moment I realized I wasn’t expecting God to do anything.

A few days before I had written on a card, "feeling stalled." I had so many things in the pot and I had been stirring the pot for so long that, in that instant, I realized I wasn’t expecting God to "actually" do anything "today."

I had begun to see God in charge of the "big picture" but "withdrawn" from the "my daily details."

With complete faith I was renewing myself in the gospel through repentance and faith–surrendering, and believing that I was "in Christ," "abiding in Christ," and that my justification and sanctification were secure and progressing.

But my supplications had turned to wishful thinking. I had believed the lie that Jesus was for the soul, but not for the body. I had believed the lie that the gospel is about salvation of the soul but not my needs.

I made the adjustment and repented of not believing the promises of God. I asked for simple childlike faith that I would be able to say every day, "Lord, I can’t wait to see what you are going to do today."

Yours for changed lives,

Patrick Morley, Ph.D.
