Yesterday I was talking to my dad about a situation, and I made the statement, “I know it may get pretty messy, but…”
My Dad stopped me and said, “I don’t receive that. Pretty sure if God shut the mouths of a bunch of lions, that He can make this smooth and easy, He can change the heart of a person” (Or something like that, I’m paraphrasing)
Later on, at Bible School in the midst of my class, as I was talking about Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego I really got it. The God I serve is BIG! I mean, really BIG! Not only did He shut the mouths of a den of lions, and make sure that three guys who got thrown into a fiery furnace didn’t even have one hair singed, He parted a sea so that a whole nation could walk through the middle of it, He made dead people live, lame people walk and blind people see. Not only that, it says in Isaiah 40:12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,
Measured heaven with a span And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure?
Weighed the mountains in scales And the hills in a balance? Isaiah 66:1 says Thus says the Lord: “Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that even though the situation you may be facing looks big, God is bigger. There is nothing that is too hard for Him. Nothing that He cannot do. He’s got your back.
Rest in that promise today. When you start to freak out about the obstacle, fix your eyes on Jesus instead. Just believe that He is bigger.
I know He brought THIS dead person to life! He is bigger than any situation! Thank you Liz!
This was great… we just have to trust that “He is” no matter what the situation may or may not be… “HE IS”. We have to remember as Pastor Chris says… there are no idle words.. jk does not make up for what was said… every word posesses power. My motto, nothing out of my mouth at the expense of my spirit. HE IS BIG!
