Don’t Push the Panic Button
“He made known His ways unto Moses, His acts unto the children of Israel.” Psalm 103:7
“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him…” Psalm 37:7
In the book of Acts, Peter and James were both put in prison for preaching the gospel. But James had his head cut off while Peter was delivered miraculously out of the same prison. Did God love Peter more than he loved James?
Peter preached on the Day of Pentecost. He stood up for the Lord Jesus Christ, and 3,000 souls were saved (Acts 2). But Stephen preached, and he got 3,000 stones. They stoned him to death (Acts 7:59).
If all you see are the works of God, you’re going to be hopelessly confused. If you don’t have a deeper insight into the ways of God, you’re going to be pushing the panic button all the time. You will never be able to rest until you know God intimately. To know God intimately is the way of tranquility.
To know God intimately begins with two things: time in His Word and time in prayer. You know God intimately by direct dealing with God. You can’t know anyone that you don’t spend time with.
