Many times, problems in life seem to be too big to handle. Whether it is family problems, financial difficulties, legal issues, or health concerns, the mountain ahead seems greater than your ability to conquer.

When these larger-than-life circumstances are turned over to God, He will provide a solution. 

The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?” (Judges 6:14).

When Gideon questioned his ability to complete the job, the Lord replied, “I will be with you” (verse 16). 

When God commands you to do something difficult you can trust Him to be with you. And, you can know that, no matter how grim things appear, He has a plan and He has things under control. Your role is simply to trust Him and to follow whatever He directions He gives you.

Thought for Today:

When God commands, He also empowers.
