Life is hard. I live in the largest resort city in the world (Virginia Beach), and I hear loud sirens and see flashing lights all the time. I’m reminded of something Sergeant Garcia said (in an episode of “Zorro”): “If things didn’t go wrong, it wouldn’t seem right.” Brer Rabbit stated: “I’m going to run away from trouble,” but like Uncle Remus told him, “There ain’t no place that far.”
If you feel that there is nothing you can do because you live at Job 5:7 (…man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.) I want to say to you – in Jesus’ name – “Change your address!” Change your address from Job 5:7 to I Peter 5:7 (Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you).
On reason man is born to trouble is man is born in sin. But Jesus was manifested to take away our sins (I John 3:5); and thus, we are invited to cast our burdens upon the Lord. (Psalm 55:22).
