Verse 3, “…it is He who has made us…” We, I did not make Him. He is not a creation of mine to do my will or to meet my needs or to carry out what I think is best. He made me. He formed me in mom’s womb starting in November of 1949 intentionally, for a reason, His reason (Psalm 139, Ephesians 2:10). Still in 3, “…We are HIS people and the sheep of HIS pasture…” (Emphasis added). This is His creation, His plan, His ministry, His kingdom, not mine. As Rick Warren so succinctly put it in the first sentence of The Purpose Driven Life, it’s not about me.
My disappointment with Him rises out of the sewer of my self-absorbed demands.
