God is BIG

Admiring the View

God is big.

I can vividly recall the first time in my own life when I actually started to believe this statement. I had heard the statement before and for years had just accepted this was true. God is big. God is great. It’s amazing how easy this is to say, but how long it has taken me to actually start living like it was true. It wasn’t until a pivotal moment in my life several years ago before I truly began understanding just how amazing this fact is.

I can relate to the dad in the Bible who says “Lord, I do believe. Help me overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24)

My “human” mind (with all its limitations on understanding) sort of compares it to things like seeing the ocean for the first time or seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time. Prior to seeing both these things in nature, I had no doubt they existed and they were awesome. I’d seen pictures of both and knew they were stunning, but it wasn’t until my first trip to the ocean’s edge and my first time looking over the ledge at the Grand Canyon did I truly experience and feel that awesomeness.

I believe God wants so much for me to live each day believing He is big. It is so easy for me to get caught up in the busyness of life and get so preoccupied with just living out my normal day to day routine, that I forget His desire for me is to experience so much more of Him. And every time in my life when I catch a glimpse of the “more” He has to offer me…it’s like I’m standing at that ocean again or at the ledge of the Grand Canyon again for the very first time and admiring the breathtaking view.

Wow.

    This is so true "It is so easy for me to get caught up in the busyness of life and get so preoccupied with just living out my normal day to day routine, that I forget that His desire for me is to experience so much more of Him." I like when you also said that we must live like we really believe what God says is truth! This is a dailey struggle. I read my Bible and then ask myself do I really believe this? And if so why am I not living like it? Great challenging post and great photo! As long as I have lived out West…still never seen that in person!:(

    God is so big it is incomprehensible. Sometimes we see what we are going through that forget how big God is, we ask how are you going get us out this? We can get so focused in the how we forget the Who.

    Hope you are having a great vacation.

    Great repost Eileen, and so true. It's difficult sometimes to comprehend how truly big God is, but He always seems to find a way to show us. 🙂

    Have a Blessed Day!

    Grateful for His bigness! How safe to feel His majesty and ability to hold the heavens in His hands, keep the waves on the shore, and mark the mountains boundaries.

    Beautiful post!
