Hello everyone! Welcome today, to Moments Spent with God! I’m so glad you stopped by and my prayer today; is that we will truly find God to be greater than the weak moments that attempt to have control over our lives!
Isn’t it amazing how our problems can attempt to point us in a direction of defeat? As each problem builds into another and the stack of problems grow taller; it seems as though these problems begin to convince us; that there is no way out of these difficult moments that stand before us.
Yesterday…after another busy day, I was thinking on this and wondering why God allows so many difficult moments to happen at one time. Doesn’t He see that this is just too much for us to handle? After thinking this over for a bit, God began to show me that each difficult moment that is allowed into our life; is there to draw us closer to a Him…the One who is much more powerful; then the power that is being displayed through these weak moments.
How soon, we forget or never even come to realize, what God truly stands for in our lives. It’s so easy to say that God is powerful but to truly know it, is a whole new story.
Last night, as a storm rumbled through in the evening, I was watching the clouds roll by, while the powerful thunder shook the sky. After the storm had passed, I began to think back to God’s power and I came to realize that what I experienced through this storm was only an ounce of the power that is contained within this great and mighty God.
Isn’t it amazing how we will allow a few weak problems to have so much control over us, as if they were a powerful god? I guess we find ourselves looking so deeply into the problem; that before we realize it, we have allowed them to control our thoughts and hearts…just by what we see before us. How is it that we can’t see them for what they really are…weak and powerless?
Sometimes I think that God allows a huge stack of problems to enter our lives all at once, as a means of testing us, to see if we truly see Him as the most powerful God. In other words…do we see God’s power in a limited way, where He can possibly help us through one or two problems or do we see Him as a God, who can go beyond what we could ever imagine or think? What do you think would happen, if we would only let Him go the full distance in our lives and work to crush this stack of problems that stands before us?
You know…it seems as though we are more willing to give into our problems, rather than giving into a God that can free us from our problems. What do you think would happen, if we were to just turn our focus away from what seems to be so overwhelming to us at the time and put that full attention into not only sharing our needs with God; but also opening ourselves completely up to Him and giving Him complete reign over every problem? Well…put it this way, things couldn’t get any worse; then what they may seem at the moment; so why not test the waters with God. There’s nothing to lose…only everything to gain.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
