Greetings From Chris
" Doubtful "
I had a lot of relearning to do this week. Have you ever had one of those moments, days, weeks, months, years or seasons when you found yourself saying 'what else can go wrong?' Probably a silly question to ask because I am pretty sure we all have. It is not hard to get overwhelmed when we look at world situations, our leaders, the way people treat each other, or even our day to day struggles. What I had to relearn is how to step backwards and raise my chin.
I should know better, but must be a very slow learner. If I find myself discouraged or overwhelmed or even doubtful it is my own fault. I have allowed my self to stand way to close to whatever it may be that is getting to me and made it bigger than it really is. It isn't until I take a step back and lift up my chin and see it from the true perspective that I begin to overcome. Until I get myself to see just how HUGE God is and that nothing is too difficult or hard or impossible for Him, I will continue to walk in doubt and fear and have a feeling of being overwhelmed.
'Is my arm too short?' God asked Moses when Moses doubted God could feed all the grumbling people. Well, unfortunately, God had to ask me the same question last week. 'Is my arm too short for you Chris?' NO it's not! I leave you with this charge from Paul in the Bible. Ephesians 3:20-21, 'Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen!" Take a step back today and lift up your chin and allow God to dwarf the so-called giants in your life! "My God is so BIG, so STRONG and so MIGHTY, there's NOTHING my GOD cannot do!"
