Sand Mountain Sermonettes 2
My mother, Jeanine, had the measles when she was small. She called them the “BIG measles.” As she was growing up, she would also cry at night when the covers on her bed would become wrinkled. Later, her mother, my “Mamaw Iris,” took her to the family doctor who told my grandmother that apparently the measles had settled on my mom’s nerves causing her to be more anxious about things.
Do you currently have a good case of the “BIG measles?” What is troubling you so deeply that it is causing you toss and turn on your bed at nights? The COVID-19 pandemic is BIG, but so is a destructive or fatal dose of unforgiveness or fear. Jesus taught us to put the BIG problem that currently stands between ourselves and our sovereign God on the other side of God, so our BIG, BIG, BIG God now stands between us and the BIG Measles, wherever they have settled.
“But seek first His (God’s) kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things (What shall we eat? What shall we drink? What shall we wear?) shall be added to you. Therefore, do be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:33-34
Jesus has overcome the world!
