How in the world is this impossible situation going to work out?” You ask yourself. It might be a wayward child, a work problem, or a marital issue. For some, this comment comes when the morning paper is read. Life seems so complicated, so risky and it always has been.
Moses asked himself the same question. Then the Red Sea opened for him. Joshua’s question was answered by the sound of shouting and musical instruments. Jericho’s walls fell for him. Later, the sun stood still for one of Joshua’s battles. The disciples asked themselves this question on a boat one stormy night as the Master slept. When He awoke, the sea came under His control and the boat and its occupants were saved.
For our family, the challenge was financial. Recently, the service trucks at our house were so plentiful that they almost had to be valet parked. Our check book was screaming for mercy. It was really comical and we would have laughed more, as we picked our new (used) van when our old one rejected resuscitation.
The wonderful thing about God is that He is not fazed by by any of our problems, large or small. He wants us to be concerned about the eternity of our colleagues, acquaintances and neighbors. What is a broken freezer, compared to someone’s need of salvation? The Word says that we should “Seek..first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.”( Matthew 6:33) Even though we have to deal with problems and annoyances, He has a larger picture He wants us to look at, which may use these problems for His Glory. When we have exhausted our physical, mental and emotional means( and we are just exhausted, period), He can work. Zechariah 4:6 says” Not by might, not by power, but by My spirit, saith the Lord.” His Holy Spirit works, in our behalf, when we’ve given up. His strength IS made perfect in our weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
The Lord does things so much better than we do. His plans are so much better than ours. Just trust Him.
