There's a reason Jesus gave us spiritual truths in stories. Stories are powerful. Stories, especially other people's stories, mean something to us. They can encourage us. They can give us hope. They can strengthen our faith. That's what they are supposed to do. Even a person's failures can do this.
Your story, the one you are living out right now, might be in a mundane chapter or a difficult chapter or an impossible chapter or maybe even a frivolous chapter, but it is an important chapter nonetheless. If you or I am walking with Jesus, He's using this chapter we are living out to show the world His Love.
Don't discount what you are dealing with.
Don't discount it has unimportant.
God reminded me of the story of His people today. They had walked out of Egypt triumphantly. They left with wealth and health and freedom. They had been slaves for almost 500 years and were freed in under a year (most likely -- Bible isn't specific on this detail). And then days go by on their journey and they find themselves stuck between the Red Sea and the enemy -- the most powerful army in the world (see Exodus 14)
It all looked and felt impossible.
God's people were terrified. IThey couldn't go back. That's where the enemy was. And the other side was the sea. What did God say to this?
He didn't tell them His solution. He didn't even talk to them. Moses did.
Moses said, "'Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent.' Then the LORD said to Moses, 'Why are you crying out to Me? Tell the sons of Israel to go forward.'" Exodus 14:13-15a
Your situation isn't impossible for God. My situation isn't. He's already working out His plan on our behalf. This doesn't mean things will go the way we hope they will. It does mean they will go the best way as we wait on God to come through.
