The fascinating thing about the word of the Lord is it depends on His character, not yours. It depends on His nature, not yours. It depends on who He is, not who you are, and the fact that we can come and find the place of shelter in who God is, we can hide under the shadow of His wing and that counts for everything with Him. It’s not about you being brilliant. It’s about Him being amazing.
