Verna Davis: No problem too small for God to handle


What he needed was a big miracle to solve his little problem. And that's just what happened; for we all know that a freshly-cut stick thrown into the water does not make a heavy, bottom-dwelling iron ax head float to the surface.

There are times in our lives when we feel a problem is too small for God. We think He has enough to deal with protecting His children from harm, healing the sick, persuading His people to be more generous, forgiving, and loving. We rationalize that helping us find our keys, a parking place, or that $20 bill we've misplaced is too small to bring to God. We think it is an ax head-sized problem, too trivial for God to deal with.

But the truth is, God cares about us. He cares about every part of our lives. The tiniest detail is of importance to God. He wants us to bring our littlest problems, even the smallest practical details to Him. He wants to take our little problems and solve them in big ways, for that will show us what a big God He is.

Do you have an ax head problem? Take it to God. Then step back and wait. Who knows? Maybe your ax head will float.
