God is Greater than Your Troubles (Morning)
Psalms 138:8 The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
When she overheard his little nephew said, “Do not focus your attention on the hole in your doughnut”, Clara just shrugged it off. Her little nephew is always funny she thought to herself. Nonetheless, her nephew’s words always come to her mind. Until she decided to open a bakery.
One day, she received an enormous amount of orders. From dusk to dawn she worked hard to satisfy her customers. When night comes and she calculated her profit, she frowned. It was not that bad, but still, it was unsatisfactory. Her margin of profit was small. So small it could even barely fit provided for her and her family. Then she saw it, a doughnut. She saw it and it revealed itself. She understood her little nephew’s words. She was too focused on the hole in her doughnut and forgot about the entire doughnut. She focused her attention on her misfortunes and forgot what God has been provided in her life.
Today, the bible wants to provide us with a rhema. Don’t be narrow-minded and shortsighted. Don’t let the devil intimidate you and separate you further from His blessing and grace. He wants us to widen our sights. To see what He could do in our lives and what He has provided for us. Get closer to Him and know Him better. It doesn’t take long for Him to solve all of our problems, all He wants to do is to observe us. Whether we could change our perception, and when we could do it, He will give us what is rightfully ours.
DON’T FOCUS ON THE PROBLEMS because He can SOLVE THEM ALL.
1. What will happen if you let your troubles overwhelm you?
2. Why does He want you to lift up your eyes up above and as wide as possible? What will likely be happening if you do that?
3. What will you do to not be stuck with your troubles? Share it with your cell group.
“Jesus Christ, forgive us for our misperceptions and how narrow-minded we were. We were busy being stuck in our troubles, and constantly complaining about it. We almost forget how great You are. You can solve our problems. We are grateful because You opened our eyes and give us this new revelation. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
