{Lessons Learned} God is Bigger

As I began writing this, a song came to mind. I have two little girls, and for a long time, they loved Veggie Tales, and they loved the song “God is Bigger Than the Boogie Man.”

It’s a catchy tune.

But in all seriousness, this truth was pivotal in my walk with God, and even now, I have to remind myself that God is bigger than whatever is going on in my life, and that I can trust Him with all that I have and all that I am.

He’s bigger than my fears. He’s bigger than whatever situation I find myself in. He’s bigger than my past and my past hurts, as well as my past successes or failures. He’s bigger than my future and what trials or achievements may come.

He’s bigger than my enemies. He’s bigger than Satan and evil. God is bigger than my sin and my fleshly desires.

But what’s most comforting to me is that God is even bigger than my resistance. He’s bigger than my will and my rebellious nature.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

– Romans 8:37-39

Indeed, God is bigger.

{We are safe in His loving arms.}

Are you ever tempted to allow your situation or anything else loom larger than the God, who is in control of all things?

    This is what I am trying to keep hold of and remember that God is bigger, a big God instead of the often too small a God I envisage.

      It is often difficult to live this truth out especially when faced with problems the loom large! Keep reminding yourself of God’s truths and be sure to cast aside any and all thoughts that contradict His Word. Blessings…
