Sometimes we find it hard to believe and trust the Lord, not so much because of the things that we see but because of the things we fail to see. This truth came to me during a recent preaching tour in the USA. I was working on my emails and attached to one of the emails was a bill that needed to be paid immediately and I had no funds to do so. My immediate response was to complain (in my prayer) and ask why now and why me and how we would pay this bill.
When Jesus was faced with a problem, He trusted in, relied on and put His entire weight upon His Father. He lived in and by and through His Father (John 6:57), trusting His Father to take care of His problem and I needed to do the same. After praying, I walked towards the front of the Hotel, where I was staying, to get some coffee. As I was walking a thought came to my mind that changed the way I looked at that bill. That bill was not my problem! It was His problem! He would take care of it, but I needed to trust in Him, rely on Him and put my entire weight upon Him. In fact, that bill was His invite for me to join Him in working more deeply in my life, by strengthening my faith. It was not really a problem but it was an invitation. God allows a crisis in order to bless and do a miracle. He was sending me an invite to join Him!
