Me Versus God
(Art Of Stubbornness)

Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.

Luke 22: 42 (NLT)


Gabby Frische, angry over a little neighbor girl falling off her bike onto her flower bed, argued heatedly with the little girl’s mother. That evening during prayer, Gabby knew she had overreacted and should apologize. Her pride, however, would not allow her to do so. She wanted things her way.

The following day, Gabby attempted to dress her daughter in her brand new pant suit. As Gabby began zipping the zip of her clothes, her daughter protested, “Me do it! Let me!” She immediately pushed Gabby’s hand away then quickly attempted to zip the piece of clothing. As she pulled on the zipper, it was pulled off track and completely off the suit.

Recognizing that she had damaged her new clothing, she began to cry. “That’s okay, honey. I can fix it,” Gabby responded. As Gabby removed the clothing from her daughter, she recalled the words, “Me do it!” Gabby then saw herself in place of her daughter regarding the incident involving the little neighbor girl falling off her bicycle onto her flower bed the day before.

Struggling against the Christian way of dealing with conflict, Gabby understood she slapped God’s hand like her daughter did her hand. As she realized what she had done to her Heavenly Father, tears came to her eyes to wash away her pride.

The next day Gabby went over to her neighbor’s house to apologize for her stubbornness.

What area of life are you resisting God’s will?


Prayer: Father, help me to faithfully and joyfully hear Your voice of good and righteous
instructions.
