Increase our faith! (Luke 17:5, NIV)
Two men went fishing. Every time the one fisherman caught a big fish, he put it in his ice chest to keep it fresh. Whenever the other fisherman caught a big fish, he threw it back. The first fisherman 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 second 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.
