How big is your God?
This question may seem obvious, but there’s a deeper truth that gives individual answers.
On the surface the answer is that God is big, huge and more. In fact, He’s omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent. Meaning He knows everything, He’s everywhere and He’s all powerful. Oh yes our God is big and there’s nothing too hard for Him or impossible for Him. His ability is limitless and His goodness endures forever. He’s the ancient of Days and the only wise God who lives in unapproachable light.
He’s so big we can’t fully describe or have words to define Him. He’s that big and mighty.
Here’s what one of the prophets said about how big He is,
“1. This is what the Lord says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Could you build me a temple as good as that? Could you build me such a resting place? 2. My hands have made both heaven and earth; they and everything in them are mine. I, the Lord, have spoken! “I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at my word.”Isaiah 66:1-2
The God we serve is the creator of everything and through His creation His power and Godhead are seen.
“For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.”Romans 1:20
Our God is BIG!
But how big is He to you?
This is defined by how we see Him and the context of which we believe in His ability and power.
Life has a funny way of distracting us with our problems to then make them big and make God small. We’ve all done this and probably too many times to count.
Here’s what happens. Something comes our way and we freak out thinking how can we do this in our power. We scramble in our minds how to do it and then we’re overwhelmed when we can’t solve it. This cycle happens over and over again, causing us to be on a roller coaster of emotions which then can drain our faith.
But God has something better!
He wants us to remind ourselves and our problems that our GOD is bigger than anything that comes our way. Through Him we win! Through Him we triumph! Through Him we rise above! Through Him we are healed! Through Him we make it!
This is what our God does.
Our part is to remind ourselves how big God is which shrinks our problems to their proper size.
So how we do remember how big God is?
First, practice praising and worshiping Him for what He’s done.
When we remember what’s He’s done, that magnifies who He is and what He can do. This is a great part of our faith and we should do this daily.
When we praise and worship God we’re exalting Him above our stuff. We’re lifting Him up higher than our circumstances which puts Him as our answer and hope. This is where He must be and it’s where He should be. He’s God!
I encourage you, practice praising and worshiping God daily. He will show up.
Second, read what He did in His word.
The Bible feeds our faith and causes our hope to expand.
This is where we latch on to what He did and believing He can do it again. This is huge in our faith because if we don’t, we’ll let the opinions of others and the wrong thoughts we think determine how big God is. When this happens, we’ve missed something because God’s word is truth and opinions are not.
Faith comes by hearing the word of God. We can do that by hearing the Bible read to us, hearing messages and reading it for ourselves.
The point is, we must feed our faith which then enlarges our view of God.
Whatever we feed on the most is what will be the biggest thing in our lives!
What are you facing today?
No matter what it is God is able to do something about it. So please, enlarge Him, lift Him high and make Him your answer. He’s moving, He’s willing and He’s able to do above and beyond what you thought.
I believe the God we experience in this life, is based on the belief we have of Him.
If we believe He’s small, that’s what He’ll be because He responds to our faith.
If we believe He’s big, that’s what He’ll be. So today, right now, make Him big and allow Him to do what He can’t do!
One day at a time, and the best is yet to come,
