Do You Measure the Size Of Your Problem Before You Pray?

Yesterday I was pathetically unmotivated to do anything in my house, but it was a mess. So I prayed, Lord, will you help me get up the energy to run the vacuum in the bedroom?

He did help. (I not only vacuumed but dusted the whole bedroom, loaded the dishwasher, did two loads of laundry and tidied the whole house.)

Then there’s a friend of mine with a $15,000 medical bill, and she’s trying hard to swallow the panic as the insurance denies it.

Vacuuming and medical bills –quite a spectrum of need.

I always notice those truck weigh stations when I’m traveling. Does God have one of those?

There He sits in the little weigh station office, and you pull onto the scales with your two-tablespoon problem in the back of the pickup. Rolling down your window, you holler, Is this too small for you two worry about?

God says, Nope.

The person behind you pulls in with an oversized load. Rolling down his window, he hollers down, Is this too big to fit on your scales?

God says, Nope.

Bring it all.

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7 NIV)
