How Big is Your Problem?
Monday August 20, 2018
Many years ago, I was visiting a Christian art exhibition in London, England and came across a painting with the inscription “This is God – I will be handling all of your problems today. I will not need your help! So, relax and have a great day”.
My friends, the bigger your problem – the greater your God and the truth indeed is that He does not need our help to solve our problems, He just needs us to trust Him.
Living life with Jesus does not exempt us from problems. However, the word of God reminds us in Psalm 34:19 that “The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all”.
So, no matter how big that marital, emotional, relationship, career, business, health problems or any other problem for that matter is, learn to:
- Trust in God – To help you through the times of trouble. He is not a liar – He will deliver you from ALL of your troubles.
- Value the lessons in your problems – God may be taking you through a journey of spiritual growth through your problems. You will be amazed how God will use it to work together for your own good.
- Rest in Him – This requires giving Him your problems through prayer and acknowledging you are helpless and cannot handle the problem without him.
- Thank Him – For what He has done for you in the past, what He is currently doing and what He is yet to through the problems you are currently facing.
Christ follower, always remember that your problems are not as big as your God. If you are currently not a Christ follower, come and experience God in a special way today.
All glory to God!
