Absorbing God’s Word
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
Applying God’s Word
Earlier this month, I wrote about not being able to get over the Grapevine in southern California, being totally fatigued and spending the night in a hotel to regroup.
The following day (12/27), I departed the hotel to drive another four hours back home. What I didn’t know is that I was dangerously dehydrated. I had only been driving two hours when I became lightheaded and my hands began to shake.
I found myself praying and asking God to get me off the road safely and to find me help. Then came the answer from God; Madera Hospital next exit. I pulled into the hospital parking lot and walked directly into the ER. I could barely sign the admittance form.
The medical staff put me in a bed immediately. As I lay there, I thanked God for responding so quickly to my prayer. After two hours of rest, some much needed fluids and a thorough physical, I was released.
I was all by myself, but never alone. It was another one of those times when I cast all my anxiety on Him. It was a reminder of how much He really does care for me and for all of us.
Accounting of God’s Word
When was the last time I felt alone? Did I call on the Lord to be with me?
