Two men went fishing. One man was an experienced fisherman, the other
wasn't. Every time the experienced fisherman caught a big fish, he put
it in his ice chest to keep it fresh. Whenever the inexperienced
fisherman caught a big fish, he threw it back.
The experienced fisherman watched this go on all day and finally got
tired of seeing this man waste good fish. "Why do you keep throwing back
all the big fish you catch?" he asked. The
inexperienced fisherman replied, "I only have a small frying pan."
Sometimes, like that fisherman, we throw back the big plans, the big
dreams, the big jobs and the big opportunities that God gives us. Our
faith is too small. We laugh at that fisherman
who didn't figure out that all he needed was a bigger frying pan; yet
how ready are we to
increase the size of our faith?
Whether it's a problem or a possibility, God will never give you
anything bigger than you can handle. That means we can confidently walk
into anything God brings our way.
You can do all things through Christ (Philippians 4:13). Nothing is too
big for God.
" Stop telling God you've got big problems. Tell your problems you've
got a big God!"
