The God Who Fixes… Or Doesn’t Fix… Your Problem

God is able. He’s definitely able.

And it’s really irrelevant what kind of problem you are bringing to the table right now. It can be big, or it can be small. It can be global, or it can be local. It can be an issue of health, finance, spiritual condition, or church. No matter what the question is, God is able. This is what we find the psalmist reminding us when he reflected on the nature of God in Psalm 8:

Yahweh, our Lord,
how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth!
You have covered the heavens with Your majesty.
Because of Your adversaries,
You have established a stronghold
from the mouths of children and nursing infants
to silence the enemy and the avenger.
When I observe Your heavens,
the work of Your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which You set in place,
what is man that You remember him,
the son of man that You look after him?

What is this issue I bring to the throne of heaven? How small it is in comparison to the One who sits on that throne?

And yet there is another side to the majesty of God. God is truly able, and yet God is also truly wise. So though I come to the throne of heaven asking for intervention, I must also recognize that the God who can fix my problem in a moment is the same God who, in His wisdom, might choose to exercise His power differently.

I can’t take the power without the wisdom. He is the God who fixes… or doesn’t fix… our problems. But either way, how magnificent is His name throughout the earth.
