Daily Gratitude Year 7-Day 170: Today, I am grateful for the right scale.
How big is this problem on a scale of one to God? What a great question for putting troubles and trials into perspective. How many times do I make the problem bigger than God?
It is human nature. We only see what we can see . We forget about the unseen forces at work in our lives and in our world.
The prophet, Jeremiah, wrestled with this, just like we do:
17)" ‘Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you." 32) “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me? -Jeremiah 32:17 & 27
Jeremiah looks at the heavens and earth's many wonders and knows that God is capable of so much more than we understand. Nothing is too hard for our God. Nothing! Nothing that comes up today or tomorrow is beyond His mighty hand.
When problems arise, do we look at them on a scale of "one to God"? We can. That choice makes a world of difference when we face worries or troubles.
Today, I am grateful for the right scale.
