Other conversations are turned toward fear because of he scripture In Matthew 7:21-23 where jesus tell them about people who come to Him saying what great exploits they did and He tells them that He never knew them.
I sat in on a conversation with Paul Young who explained it simply to me. If you are not authentic you are presenting an avatar to the Lord. An avatar is a false person not a real person. Jesus does not conduct relationship with what is not real. It seem He desire relationship with our raw real good, bad and the ugly with in us and not our polished fake presentation.
I can see where this could be the truth. Paul went on to talk about future tripping., which is getting caught up in what might be.Future tripping is not real either and is a distraction from what God is doing now. It is also an exercise in useless anxiety over what may never be. Your hope is only in the grace God gives for today. He only gives provisional grace for the one day you are in.
Does this relieve anyones stress? It does mine. I am spending more energy in staying in my moment and in my one day. I am more focused on who and what Holy Spirit is wanting to be in me in my now. Isn't that who God said He was
"I AM THAT I AM" THAT IS NOT WAS, WILL BE OR MIGHT BE.
