So many times, we are blessed by other people, as they show us something that they have learned from the Scriptures.
I had an experience like that recently.
A Christian physician, after prayer, reminded me that I Peter 5:7 is indeed a wonderful verse:
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.But then he asked me, "do you recall what I Peter 5:6 says?"
I had to admit that I did not.
He refreshed my memory:
Think about it for a minute . . .
Before we "cast our cares" on Him, what should we do? Humble ourselves. My imagination began to work overtime -- is yours?
Can you imagine the mighty hand of God, reaching down into our tiny lives? Moving. Working. Chastening. Blessing.
And what is the end result . . . He will lift us up in "due time."
Oy vey. How many times do we tearfully say to God, "Please, fix this now!"
Perhaps we should be saying, "Yes, Lord, I know that in YOUR time, this will be fixed. In the meantime, I will look for the lesson you want me to learn."
I was convicted. And then inspired to do better.
Has a verse meant a great deal to you recently? Let us know in the comments, so that others can be blessed by what you've learned from His Spirit.
