Psalm 20:4 (ESV)
May he grant you your heart's desire
and fulfill all your plans!
Did you ever want to give up on something? Have you ever been asked to do something, said yes, and then thought, “I’ll never get this done!?” Let me tell you, it’s not as bad as you think. With God’s help and instruction, YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS!
We learned that God asked Noah to build a huge boat called an ark, and because Noah loved God, he built it. But when Noah found out just how big the ark was supposed to be, he probably thought, “What? Are you kidding me? God wants it how tall? Two of every animal? How do I build it? Why again, exactly?” After calming down, he heard the comforting voice of God tell him, “I’ll save you and tell you how to do everything.” What seemed impossible to Noah, God made possible. Where Noah didn’t have the knowledge, God gave him the wisdom to do it. Thankfully, Noah didn’t have to do everything. For example, God brought the animals to the ark two by two until it was full. God even closed the giant door to the ark when it started to rain. Even though it took over fifty years to build and seemed to be an impossible task to complete, Noah did it—just as God knew he would and just in time for the big flood.
If you take things one step at a time, you’ll be all done before you know it. God tells us nothing is impossible with him. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
When something seems more than you can do, do it in small steps. Take one step at a time. Even if it takes a long time, eventually it will be done.
Dear Lord, thank You for this day and whatever we do today. We know that You will help us as we give You our plans. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
