Don’t Dwell On Your Problems

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33

In this big, wide world we are just a little speck. It’s easy to be overcome with the awesomeness of it all. Easy to be brought down by the troubles we have in it too. But God promises to be there with us and he has overcome the world.

We know that we’ll have troubles in this life. It’s so easy to focus on them and become consumed by them. I’ve been told on more than one occasion, by several different people, that I worry too much. I let things consume me that I shouldn’t. It seems like a never ending battle. And yet God is patient with me.

He would prefer that I talk to him about my concerns. To see them in his presence and realize how insignificant they are in the grand scheme of things. When my mind is so focused on my problem, I tend to lose sight of him. And I feel defeated as though I have already lost the battle.

When I feel this way, I must remember to focus on God. To feel his light shining, lighting my way. I need to begin to see things from his perspective. He can do all things. Nothing is too great or too small for him to overcome. Things that I feel are too insignificant to bother God with are not beneath him. He loves me and wants me to bring even those little things to him. He longs for fellowship with me, his creation.

Do you have something causing you to divert your focus from God today? Take it to God. Look at it from his viewpoint and you’ll see how he can help you to overcome even the biggest obstacles. Put your trust in him and revel in his never ending love.

In Faith,
