How Big.....Is Big?

What then are we to say about these things?
    If God is for us, who is against us?
                                                                                Romans 8:31

Hmm, there’s a thought to ponder…

It’s been a while since I started this thing, and to catch you all up on my life…… one word:  School.

Seriously.  It’s been ridiculous. I’ve never been a great studier, just coasted by with what I could pick up from class and it’s worked for me…for a while. This semester has really put me in my place as far as actually sitting down and learning my material…

Ok. Back to my point. As a Christian, I serve a mighty God.  Not just a God that reigns above all, but a God that is so infinite in glory and power,  that my tiny little brain can’t even begin to fathom how great He is. For real.  He is a God that not only created the heavens and Earth, but exists out of time itself. I can’t even find a starting point in trying to imagine what that is like.  God is bigger than the universe itself. That’s big.

Everybody’s got problems on a day to day basis, right? I do. Money, school, work, friends, family, etc.  We’re faced with problems all the time. I’m a problem solver, so 9/10 times, I try and fix those problems myself. Every time I fail, which is the majority of the time, I think to myself…“Dude. What are you doing? God has called us to lift our problems to him and he will take care of us, as long as we are obedient to what He is calling us to do.

This is my prayer tonight...

“God, I want everything I do in my life to be out of obedience to you. My problem solving in the flesh will only create more problems. I want to be sensitive to your voice and glorify your name in all situations. Provide me with opportunities to be obedient, and to make your name known to those who do not know you.”

On top of all this, I have trouble finding the time in my “busy” day, to sit down and really dive into the Word (that He has supplied us with) and listen to what my Creator wants me to hear. I mean I read my Bible often, but is God worth just reading my Bible “often?” Negative. God deserves everything that I can possibly give him…

Our God is larger than life itself, but yet we still try to hold on to our problems and not let Him help. Most of the time it’s because we’re afraid he’s going to tell us to get outside our comfort zone. That’s my reason 100% of the time. Think about it though. If we have our God, the One that is above everything we have ever known and will know on our side, what can stop us from glorifying His name in everything we do?

Isn't God worth EVERTHING you have?
