Stop Doing God’s Job (#697)


The greatest barrier to people embracing their own God Journey is their overestimation of our own capabilities. In short, we keep trying to do God's job. Wayne's daughter, Julie joins him for a discussion that starts with raising children but ends up exploring the entire way religion has inculcated us into trying to figure out what God wants and producing it in our own strength. But our efforts will never be enough, and then we end up frustrated by our failures. But what if we were never meant to do God's work on our own, but rather learn how to rely on him so that he can freely work in us?
