Now its weird for me to write that GOD is different from me, because, in my mind, God is God, there is no comparison to me being God. After reading this book, I realize, in me living my life I sometimes, try to control things like I’m God and I’m not.
This book gives a real eye opener to how we can act, in our own rebellion and try to act like God. It was very convicting and at the same time help me understand myself more as I live my life.
Jen Wilkins is the author of this book and writes, “Our limitations are by design. We were never meant to be God. But at the root of every sin is our rebellious desire to possess attributes that belong to God alone.
In the book she writes why its Ok to embrace our limitations and when we embrace our limitations and celebrate the freedom that comes with allowing God to be God in our lives.
As a wife and a mother of three children, this is the very lesson I am learning in my current season. Allowing God to be God in my marriage, I can’t control my husband and make him do what I want him to do. My husband is his own person and I need to get out of the way and allow God to be God to my husband and marriage. The same goes for my children, my children are growing up and starting to act like teenagers. Heading into the stage, where they think they know everything, attitudes, rollings eyes, talking back, etc. season is upon me (Help Me Jesus!). Especially during this season, I NEED God to be God in my children’s lives.
I need God ALL THE TIME. So, I ask myself… Why am I trying to act like God and try to take God’s job when I obviously need Him in my life to give me strength, wisdom and a peace of mind to navigate this thing called life.
Jen writes, God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign, infinite, and incomprehensible. I am differently none of those things and that’s a good thing. What I also love is the deep, thought provoking questions after each chapter that will help you grow in your relationship with God.
