A lot of time we resign ourselves to situations because of the information we have. Always remember that there is you and there is God. 2 Kings 5:11 But Naaman became angry and stalked away. “I thought he would certainly come out to meet me!” he said. “I expected him to wave his hand over the leprosy and call on the name of the LORD his God and heal me! There is a person who knows tomorrow. There is nothing that we can tell God that He does not know. There are situations where because of what we know, we tell ourselves that it’s not possible. Famous quote “I don’t have money to do this”. We must learn to trust God on situations that seem impossible. You cannot grow faith by trusting a God on things you can do on your own.
Look at that mountain and start walking boldly towards it and leave the rest to God. You need the “I can do it” mentality when walking with God. Forget what you know about the mountain and trust what you know about a God. Genesis 22:8 “God will provide a sheep for the burnt offering, my son,” Abraham answered. And they both walked on together.
A child believes the parent can handle any situation before them. They trust their parent wholeheartedly.
Let us approach God with the mind of a child in situations that seems impossible.
Sometimes problems are not the real problem but how we see them is the problem. There are people who will go to hospital to visit the sick and as soon as they see the person, they exclaim “I did not know you are in this bad state” Just hearing those comments can finish you. Mark 5:35-37 While he was still speaking to her, messengers arrived from the home of Jairus, the leader of the synagogue. They told him, “Your daughter is dead. There’s no use troubling the Teacher now.” But Jesus overheard them and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.” Then Jesus stopped the crowd and wouldn’t let anyone go with him except Peter, James, and John (the brother of James).
There is what people say about your situation, what you say about it and God’s view about.
John 10:30 I and My Father are one.” The simple way of understanding the trinity, God, The Son, and the Holy Spirit as one, is to think of yourself. You are either a Father, Child, Brother, and Cousin in different circumstances but all refers to you.
Colossians 1:15-16 Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see- such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him.
Revelation 19:13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
In times of trials and difficulties, the picture you have about God, will determine how you relate with Him. People can plan evil about your life, remember that there is God’s plan for you. Genesis 50:20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.
Exodus 4:10 But Moses pleaded with the LORD, “O Lord, I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though you have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.”
When God select you, He does not change you, He continues to use what is there and make it suit His purpose.
Exodus 4:17 And take your shepherd’s staff with you, and use it to perform the miraculous signs I have shown you.”
