The only thing is ... I laughed as I read these words this morning. Oh yes, it sounds like a great plan, until the ‘what if’s’ take over. We are good at making excuses, because things seem to be so out of reach or too big to handle. Obstacles that seem so big that we can’t picture ourselves overcoming them. The only thing is ... just like that little tag on our vehicles side mirrors, obstacles may appear larger than they really are.
Numbers 13:27-28 MSG
“We went to the land to which you sent us and, oh! It does flow with milk and honey! Just look at this fruit! The only thing is that the people who live there are fierce, their cities are huge and well fortified. Worse yet, we saw descendants of the giant Anak.”
The only thing is ... our God can handle those big walls. The only thing is ... our God is bigger than that giant problem that may (or may not) present itself. The only thing is... our God can handle every obstacle that presents itself before us, because our God is bigger and stronger and we can depend on Him. The only thing is ... if God sees it for us, we should too.
