As I sit here in my favorite chair reading my devotions with the sun surrounding me with its warmth. I am listening to the sounds of Spring all around me. The birds happen to be singing my favorite song and I am hearing the faint sound of saws as they are cutting down a neighbor’s tree. The dogs are snoring as they enjoying the sunbeams through the glass door…..and I am perfectly content.
I was flipping through my Bible this morning looking for God to speak to me. I think we have all done it at one time or another. I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for God to reach down and give me this 30 minute speech and lay down a road map of my life, so I can live comfortably and at peace.
I think He does that when we least expect it…I just think that we really need to listen. This morning I stumbled on this very popular verse in 1Peter 5:7 CASTING ALL YOUR ANXIETIES ON HIM, BECAUSE HE CARES FOR YOU.
I read that verse over and over again this morning thinking that this was exactly what God wanted me to read this morning, Well, He had a little more in store for me. I went down a few more verses. 1Peter 5:10 says And after you have suffered “a little while”, the God of all grace…will himself restore, confirm, strengthen and establish you.
Can I get an AMEN!!!
To my friends who are suffering this morning will illnesses and injuries, who are enduring physical and emotional pain, remember this beautiful phrase “a little while”!!
God’s got this guys….Cast all your anxieties on Him and in “a little while” He will restore you!Confirm you! Strengthen you! (and my personal favorite) Establish You!!
And it gets better…..2 Corinthians 2:14 says But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in Triumphal procession and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him EVERYWHERE….
Yes, I do believe spring is just around the corner…Winter is almost over!
“A LITTLE WHILE”
