God is Bigger Than…

1 10 2010

They say our world is getting smaller. Technology allows us to see and interact with places in the world that only a few years ago were out of reach. But we still deal with big things. Our struggles pile up until all we see are shadows. Sorrow, heartache, pain, and exhaustion make us feel small and insignificant. Sometimes we can’t say that it will all be okay. We can’t promise the direction of the outcomes, the timing of solutions, or a resolution that will ease our breaking hearts. Sometimes all we can do is rest in the truth that our God is bigger.

God is bigger than…

            – sin, addiction, bad habits, and poor choices

            – doubts, worries, and heartaches

            – loneliness and longing

            – family struggles

            – work problems

            – political instability

            – financial concerns

            – physical pain

            – unrealized dreams

            – death

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,”           – Ephesians 3:17b-18.

My Jesus Resolution today is to remember that I serve a big God. He is working right now to clear away anything that blocks my way to His heart. He is big enough to break down the walls of sin, fill in the ditches and ruts left by my bad habits, and walk with me through the consequences of my poor choices. He is bigger than the people who rock the peace of my heart. He is bigger than the forces that seem unstoppable in our society. God is bigger than anything I will face today. He is bigger than my greatest joy. He is bigger than my deepest sorrow. Today I am going to let the words of a children’s song paint their way across my day – “My God is so BIG, so strong and so mighty. There’s nothing my God cannot do!”
