How big is God? How big is YOUR God? What has he done for you? The world? Your neighbor? What can he do? Does he have limitations? Is there something to big or hard for him to handle?

God wants us to remember how big he is. He spoke everything that we see into existence. Can you take that in? Think about it. All that is around you can into being because God said it out loud. He said “Let there be light” and there was light. He has ALL power.

Proverbs 15 verse 14 reads, “The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.” If we have an understanding of the awesomeness of God, if we truly believe in our hearts the greatness of his power, his omnipresence, his strength, his love, his perfect plan, then we can ask him for the knowledge and ability to overcome everything we face. However if we don’t firmly trust in God and his might, we won’t have the confidence to seek him for guidance.

What are you going through? What do you have to face tomorrow? Is there grief, trouble, sorrow, pain? God is bigger than all of these. He wants us to bring each heartache to him. He has promised to never leave nor forsake us; he will be with us each step of the way, through the good times and the bad. God isn’t the kind of friend that runs at the smallest sign of trouble; that is when he draws us closer and wraps his arms around us. Not only has he promised that he will always be with us, but that “this too shall pass”. Sorrow and pain are not going to be our lot in life forever. We are assured of this in Isaiah 51 verses 11-16,

“Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away. I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; And forgettest the LORD thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor? The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail. But I am the LORD thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The LORD of hosts is his name. And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.”

The same God that laid the foundations of the earth has promised to wipe away our tears and to comfort until the storm passes over. He loves us and wants us to fear not. We are HIS people. And joy will come once again.
