Proverbs 14:33 says Wisdom rests in the heart of one who has understanding, but in the hearts of fools it is made known.
Tug a war is a game in which two teams pull at opposite ends of a rope until one drags the other over a central line. When I was a little girl my sisters and I would play this game all the time. It’s one of our most favorite games to play.
The Lord wants our hearts and we are still playing tug of war with the Lord. Why? Because we aren’t ready to give the Lord total control of our hearts. We might say we have we might even just believe it. But in all honesty we have not. Because if we really have given the Lord complete total control we wouldn’t have to have things our way.
Tug a war is a game of control that we as humans like to play. We love having control over situations and when we aren’t in control, we place our hands on the ropes and start the pulling. Anytime we feel we are threatened we pull even harder to gain control.
Why are you still playing tug of war?
