Is God Big Enough . . . ?

How often do we try to handle things on our own? No matter what aspect of life, we often think we can do things better than Our Maker. Why is that?

God is in the miracle business. Yet we, lowly beings that we are, try to minimize God's power, and do our best to keep Him confined to our parameters. God in a box.

Why do we forget that God is still God? The same God that parted the Red Sea and allowed a mere shepherd boy to defeat a giant can handle anything we throw at Him. Our fears, our pain, our heartaches, our dreams. . .He not only wants, but deserves them all.

What's plaguing your life today? What do you want so desperately you can taste it? Give it to God. All of it. He's more than big enough. "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. Isaiah 55:8

  1. Great topic, Mindy.

    We just signed a lease on that office space I mentioned last week. I've been worried (the sorta, but not really kind), about being able to make the rent payments. And God is so awesome, He just dropped a couple of monthly contracts in our lap that more than equaled our new expenses.
