"There Is Nothing Too Big
or Little for God"
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3: 20 NLT
God is a competent Father. Like the dad you thought you had when you were little, He can handle any problem you give Him. There is nothing that stumps Him or can use up His resources.
Sometimes, people ask me if it’s ok to talk to God about small things. They wonder if He only wants to be consulted about the big things. That’s simply not true. God loves for you to talk with Him about big and small things. The truth of the matter is, from God’s perspective, all of our problems are small.
That is so important because today we are in epidemic in our nation. Fathers are being presented as incompetent in many venues. We like to make fun of them. I don’t quite get it. God gave us fathers as a gift, not to make fun of.
Children will learn soon enough that their dad doesn’t know everything. Television doesn’t have to tell them he’s not competent. At the same time, we can trust that the God who is our Father never suffers from incompetence.
He knows all, sees all and is all powerful. Sometimes, when He acts, we call those miracles. He just sees them as doing what He can do to help us out.
Peace in the Lord,
