"My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." Exodus 33:14
There are times when we are in situations that require God's help-so we pray and call upon Him. However, when God provides the answer, sometimes we don't see it. Many times we expect God's help to come to us in big packages, big promotions, and for God to send us big ships in order to help and rescue us from our "BIG" problems. But God sometimes doesn't send help in the form of BIG packages, but in small packages.
Have you taken the time to see the many ways that God has sent help to you? Did you see that smile that God sent your way? Did you see your dog wag its tail because it is happy to see you? Did you see that you have food on your table? Did you see the beautiful sunset? Did you feel the warm breeze? Did you smell the aroma of the beautiful rose in your garden? Did you taste the nutritious food that God provided for you to survive another day? Did you hear the beautiful birds singing outside your window? These are only but a few of the ways in which God tries to refocus us to what is important and what will bring us peace.
Many times our problems are not as "BIG" as we make them out to be. Many times the solutions to our problems do not require a "BIG" action but only a realization that God is there, will always be there, and has always been there for us all along!
FATHER, when we are in situations that we feel overwhelmed in and when we feel the solution is beyond us, allow us to see the various methods and forms in which You send Your help our way every single day. LORD, allow us to have a grateful heart because when we have a grateful heart, our perspective in life changes. Thank you for your patience and for the tender love that you always send our way. We love You and we thank You. In Jesus' Name - Amen.
