Faith. Belief

Two men went fishing. One 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 the 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 throwback the big plans, big dreams, big jobs, big opportunities. 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.

Stop telling God you ' ve got big problems.Tell your problems you ' ve got a BIG GOD!

So get out there and get a bigger frying pan my dear friends!
