One time a fellow who was discouraged about some things that were happening, or not happening as the case was, came to me with his situation. He told me, “I just can’t seem to get it together. I feel sort of like a yo-yo, up and down, up and down.” The fellow had grown up in the community of church life and he was home from college for the summer. I listened to him talk about his many challenges. I didn’t give him a sermon with three points. I didn’t give him any clichés or religious assignments. My words to him on that particular day were, “Welcome to the club!”
God is bigger than you think! Problems pressing in on you? God is bigger than you think! Faith is only valuable when we activate our faith. A lot of us know about life on the yo-yo. There have been times when we too didn’t need a full-blown sermon. What we needed was a listening ear along with one or two Scriptures to think about and a prayer to get us over the hump or through the storm. God tells us what He will do, we need to believe it. Believe God’s promises and you like Moses will find out that hopes and dreams do not have to die in the desert. You will find out that the worst of circumstances do not outweigh God's power.
