An excerpt from something I read today, that really hit me:
I’m afraid I did what my grandmother used to
do. “I gave it to the LORD, and then I took it back to fuss a little
over.” Literally, these precious Words jumped out of the Bible at me
during this time of testing:
“Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?”
So this message is as much for me as it is for you. Peter could walk on
water, but he couldn’t tell a servant girl that he knew Jesus. Sometimes
we can trust Him for the big things and fall flat in the little things.
Or vice versa. Oh, how we need Him. How we need to totally trust Him in
the big or the small. Especially me. Especially me!
Does this hit home with anyone else? How many, many times have I “taken something back” from God so I could fuss over it a little more? Then I have to give it to Him again… and again…
