This year God has really been impressing upon me His bigness.
He made the heavens and the earth.
He set the stars in their place and whispered to the waves their gentle beat.
He created me, and you, and everyone and created us all for our certain time. He made us revolutionaries.
He sent His Son who died for our sins.
He gave us the Holy Spirit to lead us.
He loves us and accepts us.
He is sure in His promises to us.
He plans for us.
He graces us.
He provides for us and takes care of the very depths of our hearts.
He knows the hairs on our heads.
He created the morning and causes it to burst forth with a new Grace.
He created the night and is our lamp within it.
He knows the creatures in the depths of the sea. He set them there and is sure of all of their ways.
He has seen the gates of death and indeed He has overcome them.
He knows the height and depth and length and breadth of all things. From the universe to your heart.
He keeps the snow and hail in his treasury.
He knows how light is defused.
He knows how to scatter the winds over all the earth.
He is the owner of the thunder and of the lightening.
In all those ways God is big.
That in and of itself is the most amazing thing that I could have imagined.
But God goes above and beyond our expectations.
In Job 38:25-27 it says that He is the one “Who has divided a channel for the overflowing water… To cause it to rain on a land where there is no one, a wilderness in which there is no man; to satisfy the desolate waste.”
God is so big that even after having blessed us so immensely, even after caring for the needs of the universe and the requirements of the animals He even cares for the places that nobody lives in or thinks they need. He loves us and His earth so much that even if no one lives in that desert he waters it and prepares it for the people that someday will. He drenches the whole world in water and just as he does that with the earth He does that with us. He drenches us all in His love equally. He causes His love to rain down on the righteous and the unrighteous.
Even if you are far.
Even if you are desolate and no one cares about you God is still big.
God is still watering you in His love.
God still adores you.
God still wants to use you.
That is the big God we serve.
He seeks out the desolate places to water them.
He seeks out the lost to find them.
He seeks out the sick to heal them.
Whatever you are going through remember that God is most definitely bigger.
