Fixing Problems

In Mark 10:27 it reads, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” 

Are you facing a situation that looks impossible to fix?

In 1969, the pollution was terrible along the Cuyahoga River near Cleveland, Ohio.  It was unimaginable that it could ever be cleaned up.  The river was so polluted that it actually caught fire and burned.  Now, years later, this river is one of the outstanding examples of environmental cleanup.

But the river wasn’t changed in a few days or even in a few months.  It took years of work to build new sewage plants and reduce the industrial pollution.  Eventually, that hard work paid off and now the water in the river is cleaner than ever.

Maybe you are facing an impossible situation.

Maybe you have a habit that is driving your family crazy.

Maybe you drink too much.

Maybe you’re in a destructive relationship.

Maybe you don’t know how to control your anger.

Maybe you struggle in managing your finances.

When you face such an impossible situation, be honest…don’t  you want a quick fix and something to change immediately?

While God can perform miracles and instantly remove us from our unhealthy or sinful decisions, for most of us the changes are gradual and involve a lot of effort and work . . . like cleaning up that polluted river.

Our challenge when facing mountainous difficulties is to put them in God’s hands and trust in His timing.

As a great poet once said, “Only God can make a tree.”

This is because it’s too hard for us to figure out how to get the bark on.
