When your perspective of God is one of awe and wonder, your fear of problems diminishes. But when your perspective of God diminishes, your problems will remain the object of your awe and wonder.
In other words:
Big God = small problems.
Small God = big problems.
And our God is great and mighty! Jeremiah wrote to Baruch:
Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
~ Jeremiah 32:17 NIV
Some scientists estimate that the known universe is seven trillion light years in diameter and continually expanding. In other words, to cross the universe, you would need to travel at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second) for seven trillion years with your kids in the back yelling, “Are we there yet?” katillions of times! On a clear night, you can see about 3,000 stars from earth on a clear night with the naked eye. Scientists estimate that there are at least ten billion trillion stars in the universe.
And God made it all. He spoke it all into existence and sustains every facet of this universe in every second that passes.
If God can do that – make trillions of stars and stretch them out over trillions of light years of space, he can certainly handle your problems quite well. While it’s possible that he allows your problems to continue for a season as a source of growth in your life, it’s also true that he has already made an end of all pain and suffering by the death, burial, and resurrection of his Son, Jesus Christ.
So when it comes to your financial woes, your health issues, your relational drama, your temporary suffering, you can put it all into proper perspective by remembering that God who made the heavens and the earth by his power, is definitely big enough to fulfill every promise he’s ever made to his people.
In other words, God’s got this.
