Trust that God is bigger than your problem

James 1:5-8 (AMP)  5 If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.  6 Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind.  7 For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything [he asks for] from the Lord,  8 [For being as he is] a man of two minds (hesitating, dubious, irresolute), [he is] unstable and unreliable and uncertain about everything [he thinks, feels, decides].  

When we doubt we feel like there is not a way to solve our problems, or we think our problem is bigger than us and bigger than God.  It is time we trust that God is bigger than our problem.  When we ask God for help He is going to help us.  It may not be the way we want our problem to be solved, but He will help us.  We have to ask and receive that our problems will be handled by God.  We are not to ask and doubt, but ask and receive with no hesitation that God will handle our situation.

We don’t ask God and expect Him to help us because we deserve it, we ask God for help through our faith.  God understands our weaknesses and does not expect perfection.  Nobody is perfect which is why we need to approach God with our problems with confidence, freedom, and without fear.

Ephesians 3:12 (AMP) 12 In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
