Thoughts for me today

I bought Troy the book below. He likes it, I do too.

This is what I needed to read today as I face all my fears and worry, it is good to remember this:

(taken from page 28, In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day)

Most of our problems are not circumstantial. Most of our problems are perceptual. Our biggest problems can be traced back to an inadequate understanding of who God is. Our problems seem really big because our God seems really small. In fact, we reduce God to the size of our biggest problem.

Tozer said a "low view of the cause of a hundred lesser evils." But a person with a high view of God "is relieved of ten thousand temporal problems."

A low view of God and a high view of God are the difference between scaredy-cats and lion chasers. Scaredy-cats are filled with fear because their God is so small. Lion chasers know that their best thought about God on their best day falls infinitely short of how great God really is.

If ever there was a time where I had an opportunity to really know how great God is, this is it. I'm sitting in the middle of a lot of unknowns. My view of God will be evident in how I face my fear of the unknown.
How big is your God?
