May 5.28.14

Here is a riddle:  What is it that is too unimportant to pray about yet too big for God to handle?  The answer, of course, is: “nothing.”  Yet sometime, when the challenges of the day seem overwhelming, we may spend more time worrying about our troubles than praying about them.  And, we may spend more time fretting about our problems than solving them.  A far better strategy is to pray as if everything depended entirely upon god and to work as if everything depended entirely upon us.  What we see as problems God sees as opportunities and if we trust him completely, we must acknowledge that even when our own vision is dreadfully impaired, His vision is perfect.  Today and every day, let us trust God by courageously confronting the things that we see as problems and He sees as possibilities.  We are all faced with a series of great opportunities, brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.  Unsolvable without God’s wisdom, that is.

As for God, his way is perfect.  All the Lord’s promises prove true.  He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.~Psalm 18:30
