That deal is not a big deal, it is actually what you think it is. Your thought gave that deal the capacity and size it now has, because you believed it’s a big deal, it became a big deal.
IT IS OUR WRONG THOUGHTS THAT GIVES OUR CHALLENGES THEIR DEVASTATING CAPABILITY.
BIG OR SMALL IS A RELATIVE MATTER, take a look at this, COMPARED TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, THE RED SEA AHEAD AND THE EGYPTIAN SOLDIERS BEHIND WERE BIG DEALS BUT COMPARED TO GOD, BOTH OF THEM ARE NOTHING BUT CAT AND RAT DEALS; THE RED SEA AS THE CAT AND THE EGYPTIAN ARMY AS THE RAT. SO AS FAR AS GOD IS CONCERNED,A RAT IS RUNNING INTO THE MOUTH OF A CAT. COMPARED TO DAVID, GOLIATH WAS A BIG DEAL BUT COMPARED TO GOD, GOLIATH IS A DEAD DEAL.
What lies behind us, ahead of us or around us are really big deals when compared to us but when compared to THE GOD IN US, they are COMPLETELY FINISHED DEALS.
We can choose to measure our future by ourselves or by God. IF WE MEASURE OUR FUTURE WITH OURSELVES, IT IS GREATER THAN US BUT IF WE MEASURE IT WITH GOD’S CAPABILITY, IT’S NOTHING TOO BIG. THE GOD WHO MADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH IS IN YOU; TELL ME, WHAT THEN CAN BE GREATER THAN YOU WHO CARRY THE CREATOR OF ALL THE EARTH IN YOU. The courage to conquer is a result of a knowledge of greater capacity. WHAT IS IN OUR INSIDE IS INNUMERABLY GREATER THAN WHAT IS AGAINST US.
LET US FEED OUR SOUL AND SPIRIT WITH THE WONDERS OF THE PAST THAT WE MAY GAIN THE FAITH TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS OF THE PRESENT AND OF THE FUTURE.
