The homeowner telling Mike Holmes that "this" is a problem he couldn't fix made me laugh ~ until God reminded me that I do the same thing to Him.
You can't fix this.
Have you ever said that to God? You may not have actually said those words, but your stress, worry, anger, and tears all demonstrate that you believe "this" is the problem that God can't fix.
The Israelites thought their problem was too big for God as they stood on the banks of the Red Sea with the Egyptian army closing in on them. But God made a way through the waters. And what about when they were hungry and thirsty in the desert? God provided water from a rock and manna from the sky. He even made sure their clothes and shoes didn't wear out while wandering for 40 years.
Naomi may have thought her problems were too big for God. She was returning to her homeland after being away for 10 years, but she returned as a widow, without any sons to provide for her. But God provided through the faithfulness of Ruth and later Boaz. King David, and eventually Jesus, came through her lineage.
Daniel faced the impossible situation of spending the night in a den of hungry lions. But God! Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were thrown into a fiery furnace. But God! Job lost everything. But God!
My God is faithful!
When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.
What problem are you facing today? It may seem impossible to you, like this is the "big one", the one God can't fix. But God!
