You know you’ve given someone too much power over you when their opinion matters too much.

So true, Fiona. Maybe there is one exception, though, if that “someone” is the Lord. For it is written,

“…and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.” (Eph 5:10 ESV)

Or in other words, His “opinion” should matter most.

Susanne, his opinion can never matter “too much”. His opinion matters so much that anything less than complete power over us is not enough.

Hi Neil,

Maybe I’m a fool to believe the way I do [admittedly I think “too much” about what choice to make in any given situation], but I think you are absolutely right with what you said. Indeed, you don’t know how much your King cares for you, before you’ve experienced utter helplessness and weakness.
