Remember the chorus that you heard in Sunday school and perhaps taught it or are teaching it to  your children? (perhaps written by an anonymous person)

♬ My God is so big, so strong and so mighty there’s nothing my God can not do..♬

Well when we experience everyday life and get bored with our daily routines of picking up toys, settling quarrels with siblings, preparing favorite meals for your hubby, running to the laundry room to check the clothes in the dryer, getting the bathtub water ready for 3 little muddy boys and the list goes on and on; we sometimes forget how big our God is and how much He wants to help and bless us everyday and through every situation and circumstance.

Or perhaps we are reminded every Sunday from the pulpit how we need to trust the Lord and live for Him Mon. – Sat. and here are a list of sermon points to live by….

So, how big is your God? How big is my God?

To be encouraged I was checking out the pages in Max Lucado’s “Grace for the Moment” and thumbing through a Bible study; “Jesus the one and only” by Beth Moore and was reminded that:

We have a God of the universe:

“The Hubble Space Telescope sends back infrared images of faint galaxies that are perhaps twelve billion light-years away. (twelve billion times six trillion miles).  Astronomers venture a feeble estimate that the number of stars in the universe equals the number of grains of sand on all the beaches of the world….Why such vast, unmeasured, unexplored, “unused” space? So that you and I , freshly stunned, could be stirred by this resolve: “I can do all things through Christ that strengtheneth me” (Phil. 4:13)”

We have a God, our Savior:

Just a phrase of a song I had heard from our song director at church that says something about: our God had to squeeze Himself through the Milky way to come and live in our hearts.   Awesome thought.

We have a God of Faith:

Hebrews 11:6a says “But without faith it is impossible to please Him” So, in order to please God, we need to live by faith, step outside the box, and go do something big because, of a poem that was written from the Bible study that instead of addressing Jesus’ disciples, anyone can put leaders names or ladies in place of:

Think bigger ladies! (or men or church leaders…) You’ve yet to find I’ve got all the power all of the time

Think bigger, ladies! While it is day watch what I do, do what I say!

Think bigger, ladies! See every scene with me in the middle reigning as King.

Think bigger ladies! One day you’ll see me in my glory then you’ll say to Me…

We should’ve thought BIGGER!

♬ My God is so big, so strong and so mighty there’s nothing my God cannot do…for YOU
