I think it was G. Campbell Morgan who said, “God puts you in a FIX to FIX you; and if you get out of the FIX before you get FIXED, God has to FIX another FIX to FIX you.” I usually use that in my Jonah sermon with regard to the belly of the great fish. It means that God will put us in circumstances so we have an opportunity to listen and respond. If we don’t respond or, in this case, respond falsely or prematurely, we end up in another circumstance nearly as bad or worse. Read that Campbell quotation again. Don’t we all have situations in our lives where we see that God used difficult situations as a FIX to FIX us?
