You Are God’s Personal Concern
by Charles R. Swindoll
When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD,
He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
You know what? God personally cares about the things that worry us.
He cares more about them than we care about them: those things that hang in our minds as nagging, aching, worrisome thoughts.
Moses had some worrisome thoughts dragging him down. Do you remember why he left Egypt? He was running for his life.
Pharoah and some of his men were looking for Moses, to kill him (Exodus 2:15). Then forty years later God told Moses to return to Egypt (Exodus 3 and 4).
Naturally Moses was worried about those men back in Egypt who wanted his head. He was reluctant to go back. But once he acquiesced to God's will, he said, "Lord, I'm available. I'm going to trust in You with all my heart. I'm not going to lean on my own understanding."
Then while he was still in Midian, God said to him, "Oh by the way Moses, you know all the men who sought your life? They're dead."
Isn't that remarkable?
What a tremendous relief!
