 A Bigger Frying Pan

Two men went fishing. One man was an experienced fisherman, the other
wasn't.   Every time the experienced fisherman caught a big fish, he put it
in his ice chest to keep it fresh. Whenever the inexperienced fisherman
caught a big fish, he threw it back. The experienced fisherman watched this
go on all day and finally got tired of seeing this man waste good fish. "Why
do you keep throwing back all the big fish you catch?" he asked.

The inexperienced fisherman replied, "I only have a small frying pan." 
Sometimes, like that fisherman, we throw back the big plans, big dreams, big
jobs, big opportunities that God gives us.  Our faith is too small. We laugh
at that fisherman who didn't figure out that all he needed was a bigger
frying pan; yet how ready are we to increase the size of our faith?

Whether it's a problem or a possibility, God will never give you anything
bigger than you can handle. That means we can confidently walk into anything
God brings our way.

You can do all things through Christ (Philippians 4:13).

Nothing is too big for God. Stop telling God you've got big problems, but instead tell
your problems to a big God!
