Sometimes I wonder if the church has forgotten the vastness of God. Visit a congregation on a given Sunday and you’ll likely find a group of people sitting in comfortable chairs, hearing a comforting message about a God who keeps us comfortable. Do we understand that demons fear and flee at the sound of his name? Are we suffering from a loss of awe? Here’s what I think: a wimpy God makes for a wimpy heart, but a great God makes for a solid saint. So let him be big.
The psalmist asked, “Who among the skies is comparable to the Lord? Who among the sons of the mighty is like the Lord?” (Psalm 89:6 NASB). My friend, the next time you feel the weight of the world, talk to the One who made the world. As your perception of God grows greater, the size of your challenge grows smaller.
