“For this is what the Lord says: You will see neither wind nor rain, yet this valley will be filled with water, and you, your cattle and your other animals will drink. This is an easy thing in the eyes of the Lord; he will also deliver Moab into your hands.” 2 Kings 3:17-18.
Verses chosen from today’s Bible reading; 2 Kings 1-3, Psalm 82, and 1 Timothy 1.
Stuck in a desert against a large army, God tells them what will happen.
Yet another story of God being God. God showing up in the details of someone’s life. God doing amazing things and not breaking a sweat doing it!
What size is the God that we serve? Large? Small?
I read a story like today’s and marvel at what God can do….easily.
Then I look at family situations and I resume seeing “large” obstacles and a “not-so-large” God.
What is wrong with this picture? I need to establish the fact that I have a GREAT God. A God that doesn’t shrink. That isn’t overwhelmed by anything that is in my midst.
I must always trust that He is able to do great things. My trust must be in “that” God not the One that seems to fluctuate in my thinking.
“Lord, You are great and I am unworthy. Forgive me for underestimating Your capabilities. Allow me to commit my “mountains” to You optimistically knowing that they aren’t mountains to You. I love You, Father.”
God is not overwhelmed by any of our problems. Why then should we be………unless we aren’t trusting Him.
