When you’re going through an issue what do you see? Do you see no way out? Do you see overwhelming stress? Do you see failure? Do you see a hopeless situation? What you probably should see is an opportunity for God to do some work in and through your life. I remember this verse about my weakness compared to God’s strength and think it fits well here.
English Standard Version (ESV)
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
So let God show his muscle in our problems. Lets show that we trust him with our burdens. ———- Read Numbers 13
Lord, when I am overwhelmed by my situation, help me to see you in my trouble.
