Most days I get so caught up in the chaos and needs of life that I forget God has a plan for my life. Then you add in all the problems that come through different seasons of life and I can begin to feel alone in the struggles. Today we will look at how to be still and really see God in the midst of our troubles.
We will see that God is bigger than any problem! Did you find this mid-series? We are in a day Fast to learn how to be still and know God. Keep up with the series here. The Bible is a comfort to me because it reminds me — every single time I open it — that I am not alone in this struggle. Even prophets had moments they needed to be reminded to be still and trust in God. The context of 2 Kings makes it my favorite Scripture proving God is bigger than any problems we face! The prophet Elisha is in the middle of a difficult situation. God revealed something to him, something to share with the King of Isreal that his enemy thought no one knew.
God is bigger than your fears
So the Aramean army is marching against the prophet who is alone with only his servant 2 Kings This is a big problem! How did he do it? What are we to do?
Prayer changed the fear of the servant. God helped the servant see how much bigger He was than the problem he had seen at first glance. What are the problems facing you today? Is there an army attacking?
God is bigger than your fear
There are seasons of life when it feels like so much is happening that you must be under attack. In this series, we have seen that there is a very real Spiritual battle happening over your life. Do you believe that?
What we need, if we want to live a life where faith is greater than our fear is to learn about giving problems to God and leaving them there. My God is bigger than any problems I face. And He sends Angel armies to fight for me — and you! If there are Angel armies believe that there are also demonic forces. We see them mentioned in the book of Daniel as well. about spiritual warfare in Daniel here. In this passage, we see that Elisha is a real Prayer Warrior and he has seen God do amazing things!
We have all seen God do amazing things. We struggle to believe God is bigger because the enemy is doing his best to keep you out of the battle. We need a bigger view of God. This goes beyond knowing that God is big to the heart of believing God is big. How do you become a Spiritual Warrior?
How to act like god is bigger than any problem today
This is the kind of life Elisha lived and why I believe He knew God was bigger than his circumstances. Easier said than done I know.
The Aramean army felt sure of a victory. An entire army against a prophet seems like a no-brainer.
God is bigger than your fears
But God had another plan. Would you ever imagine a war being won by temporary blindness? But think about the times God has fought for you in ways that were totally crazy; it fits His nature! How could the prophet be so sure of His God? God had been faithful in the past. Elisha knew God was bigger than his problem!
Learning how to make God bigger than your problems is about faith or trust in the Lord. God blinds the army, allows them to be led back home where they are so confused that the battle evaporates! Notice how God helps us in difficult times in this example from the life of Elisha and his servant.
God does not keep His people from trials and testing. The will of God, His plan for your life, will not be problem-free. We have to see that God helps us while we are in the midst of difficult times. Through the times of trial and testing, we learn to be still and trust Him more as we know Him more. Imagine if He did stop all our hard times, we would be so spoiled and immature. Google Bible verses about faith and you will see that faith grows best in the midst of troubles. Not the answer you wanted? Me either!!!!!
I wish the Christian life was easy, comfortable, and always blessed. What God gives is faith through trials. God is bigger than any problems, God is bigger than your worries, God is more powerful than the enemy attacking your life.
God is greater than your fears
That same God longs to grow your faith so He allows the hard parts to happen. It is so hard to believe you are bigger than the problems I face. I can see my problems… it feels like my enemy is flesh and blood. Give me eyes to see You in the midst of the drama, Lord. Remind me how You have come through for me time and time again. I praise You for being so faithful in my life. You have never failed me and I trust that you never will.
I will give You the glory for every victory Lord. We can hang up God is bigger than my problems quotes, and listen to Isaiah 40 sermons but until we decide to take a step out in faith nothing will change.
