I recently read a story about a little girl who asked her aunt, “How big is God?” The aunt wasn’t sure how to answer, so she asked her niece, “How big do you think God is?”

“Big enough!” said the little girl. Doesn’t that simply say it all?  God is big enough for whatever happens, whatever we need, whatever we face … God is big enough.

Yet too few of us live our lives with that insightful perspective.  We have a difficult time seeing God in His full glory and greatness.  We limit Him with the limits of what we call “reality.”  Just last month I was talking with a client about God. His understanding of God is of limitations, distance, and constraint.  My  God is so much larger.  He knows all; He was, is and will be. He is the beginning and the end and everything in between.  He sees all and created all.  He is hands on and always present. He is loving and just, merciful and just. He gives us the freedom to choose Him in all His Glory and Greatness, or turn away from Him and live within our own limited view and understanding.

How big is your God? Big enough for everything that He allows to impact our lives. There is nothing that God cannot handle. All things to His Purpose and Glory!

Psalm 66:3 (NKJV)
Say to God,
“How awesome are Your works!
Through the greatness of Your power
Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.”

Proverbs 26:10 (NKJV)
The great God who formed everything …

Jeremiah 32:17–20 (NKJV)
Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. You show loving kindness to thousands, and repay the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them—the Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts. You are great in counsel and mighty in work, for your eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, to give everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings. You have set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, to this day, and in Israel and among other men; and You have made Yourself a name, as it is this day.
