God is greater than our problems


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times God created the universe. All of its vastness, complexity, and mysteries had their origins in His mind and He and He alone controls it. God, simply put, is greater than the universe, greater than the whole of creation. So, given that God is greater than creation which itself is greater than the human race and all its pretensions of control and domination of the world around them, why do we not recognize that He is also greater than all our problems? Too many times we believe there is no hope, no help for us when we face problems that seem impossible to overcome. We’re often right, of course, that there is no hope, no help for us in such situations, none that is, if we rely on ourselves and leave God out. If, however, we recognize our helplessness and turn to God, then we have hope because we have the help of one who never fails those who trust in Him. That’s because God is greater than any problems we may have and because of that He will come to the aid of those who trust Him and rescue them from the problems that once seemed without solution.
