In The Mind's Eye

Have you noticed how a problem can grow and become so big in your mind's eye that it controls all you think about.  The problem becomes alive and it continues to grow until it is all you see.  Everything you think about is filtered through this problem. It is a miserable way to live but we all do it.  I have a situation now that I am praying about...but since this problem has grown so big in my mind, many times I am not praying at all...just repeating the same situation to the Lord and asking Him to give me the answer I want.  Wow I have lost sight of God in the midst of my problem.  Not a good place to be.

I have found some simple steps in resolving this problem.  I remember the character of God.  I remember that He is eternal, He is the creator, He holds all things in His hands.  Nothing can touch me that He has not allowed.  I remember who He is and bow before His throne room.  In the process of bowing I am thankful...thankful I have been called out of the darkness.  Thankful that when I cry He bows His ear. Scripture says, "God is abundant in mercy to all those who call upon Him."  Now I am ready to submit my will to the Holy One.  The One who holds life and death in His hands.  Submit means to surrender.  That situation that was so large in my mind, is now small compared to this great God who cares and knows my name. 

Yes, I am ready to surrender.  To lay the problem at my Lord's feet and allow Him to work as His perfect will would allow.  You know what happens...Peace fills my soul and I have a promise from Psalm 91:14-16:
Because he has set his love upon Me,
therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
and show him My salvation.
