Think about this for a moment . . . Is your God too small? Is He still lying there as a baby in a manger, or do you see know Him as the Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the universe?
How limited our view of God can sometimes be. That tiny baby we see in the manger is Emmanuel–God with us….always with us. In all reality, we can not truly grasp how big God is…His greatness, love, justice, mercy, strength….His grace, and yes, even His forgiveness. He is boundless.
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. “ Isaiah 40:28,29
These truths are proclaimed throughout the Old Testament to His chosen people as a reminder to them, because they kept forgetting and would take their eyes off of Him, they failed to follow Him and sometimes they even hardened their hearts towards Him.
Are we guilty of doing the same thing? Do we fail to know who He is and His unchanging character? Is our God too small?
He sees you. He’s holding on to you and won’t let go. He is Emmanuel, God with us. No matter what you are going through today, He is not surprised by it and He will not loosen His grip on you.
Be of good cheer dear ones, Our God is a BIG God. Our Lord God is with us!
Lord, You are awesome in power and majesty. You do not grow weary, even when we do. You are the sustainer and lifter of our heads when we think we can’t put one foot in front of the other or even take the next breath. Lord God, You are big and great and wonderful. And I am small and weak of heart. Thank You for sustaining me yet another day.
