The Message of God

A friend invited me out tomorrow. I was going to decline out of fear. This is a busy weekend with the Nursing Home Service. I started making excuses.

1. I don’t have time to relax.

2 Chronicles 36:21, “This is exactly the message of God that Jeremiah had preached: the desolate land put to an extended Sabbath rest, a seventy year Sabbath rest making up for all the unkept Sabbaths.” The Message

2. It’s going to be over 90°.

2 Kings 25:24, “…Trust Me, everything is going to be all right.” The Message

3. Ragweed has bloomed.

Jeremiah 39:12, “Look out for him. Make sure nothing bad happens to him. Give him anything he wants.” The Message

4. There’s a haze from the wildfires.

Jeremiah 39:18, “…You’ll walk out of there safe and sound because you trusted Me. God’s Decree.” The Message

I got out an extra-fine Sharpie pen and wrote on my palm:

  • 2 Ch. 36:21, Extended rest.
  • 2 Ki. 25:24, Trust Me.
  • Jer. 39:12, Nothing bad will happen. You’ll get anything you want.
  • Jer. 39:18, Safe and sound.

I’m taking those promises with me. Faith over fear.
