"Hey Problem, I have a big God!!"

So I was on facebook today and saw a quote on one of my facebook friend's statuses that I then copped and set as my status.  The quote is this:

"In times of difficulties, don’t ever say, ‘God, I have a big problem!’ Instead say, ‘Hey problem, I have a big God!’ and everything will be all right." ~ Brahma Kumaris

 I am not a believer in mere coincidence.  I mean, in things that really matter.  For instance, I DO believe it could be a coincidence that you wear the same outfit as a friend....or that you call someone who tells you they had just picked up the phone to call you....but I do NOT think it was mere coincidence that I saw this verse today.

It's so easy to get bogged down with all the problems we face in this world (for me, I know, it seems like the list in endless), and it's easy to forget that God really IS bigger than ALL our problems.  But the reality is this -- He totally IS!!

I have been struggling with various things significantly this past week, and it would be a lie to say I have faced every trial and relied fully on God and in His healing power.  But I can say this:  I have NEVER doubted that GOD, the Almighty Father, is fighting my battles for me, especially when I don't feel like I can fight them myself.   

Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all of his bones; not one of them is broken.” (Psalm 34:19)

Not only does God fight for us, but He promises to DELIVER us from what ails us.  We just have to be mindful that He will do it on HIS time, not OUR time, and DEFINITELY NOT Ed's (or any other affliction's) time, because if He did it on the schedule of the latter, it would never be accomplished, and if He did it on OUR time, it would never teach us patience (one of the hardest, but most rewarding, fruits of the Spirit, to embody). wrap up....instead of telling God, "God, I have this really big problem and I don't think I can beat it," we should say, "Problem, I have an insurmountably big GOD, and He will take care of you!!"

So take THAT, Ed!!  MY GOD FIGHTS ON MY BEHALF, which means He will help me defeat YOU!!

God bless,
