Got Big Problems? Need Big Answers?

Sandra Hersey Keys To Victorious Faith

Small problems we face only need small answers; however big problems present an opportunity for God to show up and show out with big answers. When we have big problems we are placed in the perfect position for see our Jehovah Jira provide the big answer!

In the book of Exodus we see God giving Moses detailed instructions on how to lead the Hebrew children out of slavery and bondage. At every turn Moses pleaded with God to let him out of his mission, however God provides Moses with all he needs: God himself, his brother Aaron to be his mouthpiece, and the ability to do miracles. Moses kept seeing problem after problem with him being able to adequately do the job God was sending him to do. As we continue reading we see small problems of “what if” grow into big problems of brutality. When Moses asked Pharaoh to allow the Hebrews to worship their God in the wilderness Pharaoh’s response resulted in harder work, increased workload, and more oppression for the slaves.

James 1: 2-4 gives us an answer to how we are to react to big problems, “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

Problems in our lives develop patience and character in us which in turn allow us to be ready to be used by God. We are not to give up and we are to look beyond the temporary setbacks which come our way. We are to focus on what God is instructing us to do; He is in control.

Remember anyone can obey God when things are going easy and the task at hand is small; everyone will be behind it then. However only those who persist in their faith and obey when everything seems impossible – when the problem is BIG; then they will have a chance to see God provide BIG answers!

What are you facing today? Is it a big problem? Then seek your Heavenly Father, listen to His directions, apply His Word to your situation, and watch Him provide a BIG answer for YOU!
