"Whatever is built by the flesh will have to be maintained by the flesh. Whatever is built by the Spirit will be maintained by the Spirit." We often ask the Lord to remove anything that is not of Him. This is what that process looks like. Imagine that every item you have, everyone you know and everything you remember is stripped away. What will remain? What will grow up once again even if it is removed, without you even trying? That is the stuff that is maintained by the Lord. May everything that we are be built up in the Lord. Anything that we stress over trying to protect and keep... will not the Lord protect and keep all that is important to Him and to us?
