Fleeing in FEAR- May 16, 2007
This morning I came across a scripture in II Samuel 2:4 that was really amazing:
Jonathan, Saul's son, had a son who was a cripple in his feet. He was five years old when the news came out of Jezreel [of the deaths] of Saul and Jonathan. And the boy's nurse took him up and fled; and in her haste, he fell and became lame. His name was Mephibosheth.
How many times have we injured ourselves because we react in a situation under false assumptions or out of fear? Because of the way we react we damage our outlook for the rest of our lives, or someone else. This maid heard that Saul and Jonathan were killed in battle. In haste she picked up this five your old little boy and ran with him. IN HER HASTE ….HE FELL…and became lame.
Do you find yourself jumping to conclusions?
Assuming that everyone is thinking the worst of you?
Fleeing in Fear?
If she would have stayed put…Mephibosheth would have been safe. David and Jonathan were as brothers. He would have given his life for Jonathan and thus his son.
It is true that only 10% of all of our fears come to pass. This things that are waiting you down today…lay them at HIS Feet. He is waiting to lift your load!
Lord help me to not over-react, assume, or fear today. Help me to know that you have all things worked out for my good!
Romans 8:28 –And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to hose who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose!
