A Problem of Perspective



If you’re feeling overwhelmed, remember how great God is. Problems shrink when God expands in your life. Fear is always a problem of perspective. You fear your problems because your God looks small. If God looks small, it’s because he is far away. And if God is far away, guess who moved? Draw close to God in prayer, and see how your perspective changes. The closer God gets, the bigger he gets; and the bigger God is, the smaller your problems become.

O Lord, God of our fathers, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you.
