The Lord Cares For You
“casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 (ESV)
Each of us at one time in our lives have found ourselves worried or anxious about something. It did not mean we did not have faith that God could work it out, or that he would work it out, but the enormity of the situation that we were facing caused us to worry about how we were going to make it.
You Have A Part To Play
"I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase." 1 Corinthians 3:6
In every team sport each of the teams members has a part to play. In some sports some play defense and others play offense. Then there are those on the team who do not start, but play a vital role by coming off of the bench, and being a substitute when necessary. When teams play together they do well, and they usually end up winning because they are playing well together.
“You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy 8:18 (ESV)
There are some people who have better memories than others. They can sit down and tell of stories of events that happened years ago like they were yesterday, and others had forgotten all about them. Then there are those of us who have to write everything down, because if we do not we will forget what it is that we are supposed to be doing.
Seek And Call
“Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:” Isaiah 55:6
For some of us Mondays are not the best day of the week. If we had our way we would extend our weekend into Monday just to rest from the weekend. For some of us Monday is a day we are forced to deal with unfinished business and things that were not accomplished from the week before.
