Tell Your Problem About Who?

I have heard it said “Don’t tell God how big your problem is, tell your problem how big your God is.” This sounds good but, what’s the practical application? I have learned, God either causes or allows the problems we encounter throughout life. God has not chosen to spare even His children from the consequences of living in a fallen world. Living godly lives does enable the believer to avoid some of the unnecessary suffering that others bring upon themselves by ignoring God’s moral and spiritual laws. Yes, Christians do get sick and die. Christians are robbed and raped. They have accidents. They lose loved ones in fires, earthquakes and hurricanes. And it seems at times that believers suffer more than the wicked. (Psalm 73.) Why then would a loving God cause or allow us to suffer? We may never know the answer to this question. Remember Job? He could not see what was happening in heaven just before his suffering began and God never explained to Job why He was chosen one. My suggestion, don’t tell your problem how big your God is rather, remind your problem that God is using ‘IT’ to create in you a steadfast spirit and through ‘IT’ God will glorify Himself and He will use ‘IT’ to draw you closer to Him!
