When Scripture Makes You Nervous

I read the same verse three times the other night, and it made me nervous.

Three separate times, in less than thirty minutes, God directed me to focus on 2 Corinthians 12:9 —

My grace is sufficient for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness.

And after the third time it showed up, I think I stopped breathing for a minute. You know how preachers say, “if God says something more than once, you better pay attention”? Yeah, I was definitely paying attention!

And then I got nervous. Was God preparing me for something bad that was going to happen? Was He reassuring me before the fact, so the verse would be fresh in my mind?
