We all face problems bigger than ourselves. We all go through things we didn't think we would. Some even go through things they didn't think they could. Where do we turn when we're out of our league? How do we cope with fears that go beyond out courage to fight? How do we tap God's power when our faith is small? How do we pay bills that are greater than our income or savings? How do we conquer enemies who are too strong for us?

Enter: God Almighty!

God is bigger than our fears. Isaiah 41:10  “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness.”  Fear is common to all in one way or another. Fear was the first evidence of the fall. Genesis 3:10 “And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and hid myself.” God was here before fear came on the scene. Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” God will be here when all the fears of the ages have departed. Rev. 21:6 “And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.”

God guarantees He is greater than all our fears (for I am with thee). Consider all the “fear nots” in the Bible. Remember people of faith who conquered their fears (Moses, Joshua, David, etc.). The resurrection of Jesus declares He has overcome our greatest fear.

God is better than our faith. Matthew 17:20 “If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed ye shall say to this mountain, Remove thence to yonder place; and it shall remover; and nothing shall be impossible to you”. It's not the size of our faith but the strength of our Lord that makes the difference. Mountain moving faith rests in our omnipotent God. Meek Moses lifted his rod and God parted the Red Sea.. Fearful grieving Martha saw Lazarus rise at Jesus' call (John 11:43-44)

God is richer than our debts. Phil. 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalm 50:10). Our rich Heavenly Father has no shortage of funds. No creditor has anything on his ledger beyond what God can provide. Sometimes in giving, we tap Gods' boundless supply
Luke 6:38 “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

God is stronger than our enemies. Psalm 18:3 “So shall I be saved from mine enemies”. How did the psalmist plan to find safety from his enemies? He said he would find safety by calling on the Lord. We as Christians have the armor of God to protect us from all our foes. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

The believer's victory is assured in the Gospel. Since Jesus died and rose again, He achieved the ultimate victory. The One who saved us is able to keep us all the way to heaven!God is big enough to meet all the needs of those who trust Him!

Until next time...enjoy the journey!
