I’ve been at a place where I’ve tossed aside some of the Bible’s promises and it’s directives. Some verses that are applying to me right now, in that I’m not believing them confidently are Psalm 1:2, John 17:17, and Matthew 4:4. In these verses I see Jesus relying only on God for his spiritual sustenance.
Jesus never “flew solo” when it came to his thoughts, words, and actions. This includes all his concerns and worries, as well as anything he may not have wanted to follow through on. As I’ve been facing the challenges before me, I have not turned only toward obedience. I do not have the singular confidence that my faith has driven me toward in the past.
