Someone has said that if you know how to worry, you know how to meditate. Both are mental methods of rehearsing something–either fearful (worry) or good (meditation).

As I’ve been studying Micah and other minor prophets (and throughout the Bible), I’m amazed at how often God says something like, “Remember what I did for you when I brought you out of Egypt?” “Remember what I did for you when I gave you victory going into Canaan?” He keeps repeating over and over again what He has done in the past with the purpose of building their faith and trust in Him. If He was faithful in the past, He’ll be faithful now.

As I’m a little discouraged today with care giving, at times the weariness hits me, I also must rehearse God’s faithfulness and promises. He doesn’t give me more than I can handle in His power. He promises to bring good out of every situation. He promises that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. He says He’ll meet all my true needs.

He has been faithful to keep those promises in the past and He’ll continue. He is a faithful God and He cares for me. He cares for you.
