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, big dreams, big jobs, 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, but instead
tell your problems to a big God!
