TOPIC: Oh, That Grinch!

[You] are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials. – 1 Peter 1:5-6

Recommended Reading: 1 Peter 1:3-9

When Jim Carrey was playing the Grinch in the movie version of the story, he nearly lost his mind. The first day it took more than eight hours to put on his makeup, and he felt so uncomfortable in the costume he could hardly function. The producer called in a CIA officer who specialized in helping U.S. agents withstand torture. The CIA specialist spent a weekend helping Carrey learn to handle his discomfort.

Here on earth, we’re often loaded with problems, pains, discomforts, and worries that wrap themselves around us like a costume. We feel the weight of it. But we have a Divine Specialist who uses His textbook to show us how to manage the problems and still function with joy and peace. We have the power of God within us and the hope of heaven before us.

We all face troubles and trials, but when we focus on God and His character, we find joy and peace in the midst of them.

Jesus whispers consolation, I cannot refuse it, I will sit under his shadow with great delight.
Charles Spurgeon

Read-Thru-the-Bible: Jeremiah 1 – 3
