The other day we were having a challenging issue with a client. I wasn’t sure how to deal with it so that the client would not think that I was being rude or disrespectful. I decided to just sleep on it, and I hoped I would figure it out in the morning. Before I went to sleep, I kept thinking about how to address the issue, and when I woke up I continued thinking about the issue.
I decided that I would inform my boss about the issue and let him deal with it because I had tried and tried to figure out how to resolve it, but to no avail…
Later, however, I found out that my boss hd already handled it, even without my prompting… It felt good not to have to worry about that situation, but I also thought it was funny that I spent so much time worrying about something that had already been handled.
That’s how God is to us sometimes… We spend so much time and energy trying to resolve something that God has already promised us that we don’t have to worry about, because he has already handled it. Just because we haven’t stopped to take the time and acknowledge that we are not alone, and we never will be, does not mean that God is not right there with us solving all sorts of problems – some of them that we didn’t even know we had…
So I guess my encouragement today would be that whatever issue you may be dealing with, just sleep on it… and perhaps you will find out tomorrow that you shouldn’t have wasted time worrying.
