Is Anything Too Big For God?

It is easy to “talk” about trusting God, but so much more difficult to actually walk in that trust.  Monday, I had read a post that inspired me: Patience means choosing to Trust God even when the circumstances haven’t changed yet-  Victoria Osteen’s. As I read that I knew that somehow that was posted for my viewing. I was so moved by the quote that I shared it, all the while believing that I was trusting God while waiting for change.

But later that night, a mere text message with four words completely tore me apart. I immediately felt my old “friend” fear and his brother worry take over my mind and my heart. I began to analyze every scenario and did what I typically do, I withdrew and went to bed. I went to bed to be alone with my old buddies “fear and worry”.  Lying in my bed, I began to ask God to change my situation. Instantly (not minutes or hours later) He spoke into my my heart the words “I will redeem it all”. God did not promise me that he would redeem part of what has been tarnished and lost. He spoke to me that he would redeem it all. Peace flooded me. Peace beyond my understanding.

So I urge you to ask yourself, Is there anything that you are holding on to that you think is too big for God? Because we serve a BIG God. He can Redeem It All! I am standing on these words that calmed my heart and gave peace to my weary soul.

Phillippians 4:6-7  Do no be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    1. Thank you Lillian. The trusting does not come easy for me. Long story that I’m sure I will eventually share. And thank you for the compliment on the blog. I’m very new at this and just share what’s on my heart. I started this as an outlet for my feelings.

  1. It amazes me how God responds when we turn to Him! Sometimes we get the mindset that God’s answers are always slow, so we aren’t looking for the moments when He is actually prompt. (Well, in our understanding of time.) I’m so glad that He breathed peace into you just when you needed it, and that you were able to receive it. 🙂

    1. Thank you. What a great perspective that you just gave. I know that I miss His answers sometimes because I’m too busy looking for the answers myself. It’s been a rough few years for me and more than ever I’ve learned to lean on God. He alone has give me peace.

  2. I think its really cool how similar we are. I just had a night kind of like that where something came across the cell phone screen and it kind of shattered me. I retreated into myself feeling frustrated, hurt, anxious, and let down.
    The difference is unlike most other times this time I took it to God. By the time I had shared my heart with Him I felt just.. at peace. Peace enough to sleep. Peace enough to let it go. Peace enough to trust Him.

    I am more and more convinced every day, there is nothing too big for my God.

  4. I’ve heard it said that faith believes God will redeem it in His timing, whereas worry says God needs to fix it NOW! Patience and trust is how I have learned to lean into the Lord, knowing my circumstance now is not an indication of His absence but rather a testimony in the making.

  5. Urrrgggh I hate that, when you’re stuck in a situation you’d rather not be. I have learnt to trust in the fact that God is sooooooo BIG that He can use that same situation I want out of to bring redemption, deliverance, healing, salvation etc. That can be TOUGH! 😦

    So, for me trust is about not even asking How, just accepting that He IS – still learning to walk in this x
