I hear the question this morning while I’m reading. “How big is your problem?” My first thought was, I don’t have a big problem, my second thought was I have some little problems. My thought after that was, why are you even asking me that question? I didn’t get an answer to that question. So, I just sit still and then the thought trust in the Lord with all your heart came to mind.
Proverbs 3:4-6 trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.
Substitute the word heart with the word problems for just a moment. I think a lot of times we tend to trust the Lord with the small problems and not with the big ones. Some of us trust the Lord with the big ones and not with the little ones and some of us think we got this. Which one are you. Or do you trust the Lord with everything?
Go back to yesterday where I wrote what is Jesus doing? If you recognize what he is doing, then are you okay with it? Do you have peace? Are you sleeping at night or are you waking up in the middle of the night thinking about stuff that you have no control over?
Proverbs 3:7-8. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the lord and turn away from evil it will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.
What if you substituted the word evil for pride?
Fear the Lord and you will have healing over your flesh.
Lord, I pray that you shine your light on the areas that need to be exposed. Reveal where I want to have control and not you. In Jesus name
