Around this time last year, I had a pretty major health scare. Basically, I got crippling headaches out of nowhere, with no warning. After several trips to the ER in several different states, the only reason any of my doctors could give me for my condition was this: I was going too fast. I needed to slow down.
Shortly afterward, I was in New York City when a friend who lives there invited me to dinner. We met, and as I told him what was going on with me, he quoted a verse of scripture that stopped me in my tracks: “He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:30, ESV)
Are there areas of your life where you need to slow down? Where God is calling you to decrease so He can increase, and show you the miraculous world of the ordinary?
