Hey, did you know that Jello has had
many uses from preservation of
meat before refrigeration all the way to development of pictures. Here's a surprise do you know which state
upholds jello as their state snack? Yep you got it ... drum roll ... it's Utah.
Today our meditation verse is found in Prov. 22:13 "The lazy person claims, "There's a lion out there! If I go outside, I might be killed."
Laziness is a recurring theme contrasted to industriousness throughout Proverbs. You can find further instruction about this in Prov. 21:25 & 26:13-16.
The inference here is connected with the fearful, as well as, the lazy. The slothful/lazy person stays inside in a protected environment to "stay safe".
The underlying warning here is to be sure to guard ourselves from missing opportunities for God to guide us in ways that we may be used for His purposes, by the fear of the unknown.
Now to be sure our enemy is the lion 1 Pet. 5:8, but within us is our power Rev. 5:5 the Lion of Judah.
Just think about this... It was fear
that kept the Jews from entering the Promised Land (Num. 14:32). However, they finally discovered that, all along, their enemies we afraid of them & their God ) Josh. 2:9-11.
So Go With God and realize that, truly, greater is He that is within you, than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4)
