I’ve been thinking about my circumstances as a way God makes certain scripture passages true in my life.
What a wonderful challenge to consider that this situation I’m in might be the means by which God animates scripture for me!
If I’m lonely, I will learn that “He sets the lonely in families” (Psalm 68:6). If I am scared, I will learn what it means when God says, “Do not be afraid, for I am with you” (Genesis 26:24).
I think about whatever I’m going through as a way to see Scripture better, to know God more, and to grow into biblical maturity. Whatever hard or sad thing comes, it’s a doorway to experience God’s promises.
