The size of our worship depends on the size of our God.

Worship changed in my life when I began to live as if God was truly big enough to take on my giant.

When I gave God the benefit of the doubt and chose to believe that He could do anything. (Eph 3:20)

When I put all my eggs in one basket and said, my only hope is You

I’m trusting You to get me through this, Lord.

I no longer want to live life cowered in fear.

I no longer want to pretend the giant’s not there.

I no longer want to run away from this life you’ve given me.

I’m done settling.

I want more.

And then I watched the giant fall beneath my feet (Ps 18:38)

I watched him go down and not get back up.

And for nearly 12 years now there has been incredible peace and joy in the Land.

Yes, there are still seasons of difficulty.

But I choose again and again to give Him the benefit of the doubt.

Because I know what a BIG GOD is capable of accomplishing!

And I know He deserves all my worship.

    Thank you for the share Eileen. Yes, our God will be as big as we allow Him to be. About 2 years ago, I decided to let Him be big in my life and have never regretted that choice. There have been and continues to be difficult times, but I turn to Him far more quickly than ever before. It’s good to remember we can “cast all our cares on Him.” 🙂

    I believe it’s Pastor Joel Osteen who says “Don’t tell God how big your problems are, tell your problems how big your God is.” I’d say this writing works just as well. Blessings.

    Learning to let go like this can be so difficult! I know I have struggled with trying to handle too much on my own before as well. You said it well in the ending lines..the choosing again and again to give Him the benefit of the doubt. Lovely thoughts here 🙂
