He is Bigger

by | Aug 14, 2013 | Encouragement, God

I was going to get on my blog tonight and make a post about the positive changes I’m making in my health. I

was going to hopefully not only encourage myself in this journey, but hopefully encourage someone else too. That post might have to happen another day, as my mind is consumed with other more important things tonight.

A former co-worker’s sixteen year old daughter passed away today. My son is the same age. I can’t imagine such a heartache and experiencing such grief. I am lifting this friend and fellow mother in prayer.

Tonight I read a post from Tiffany, a friend of mine who is doing what she can to be strong and stable as she fights for her daughter and her daughter’s health. Insurance companies seem to be calling the shots for Crystal’s treatment, which has got to be beyond frustrating for them. I am praying God clears the path for them and heals Crystal completely.

Seven people were killed locally in car accidents over the weekend. I know what it’s like to have a loved one in a serious car accident, but I pray God never allows me to experience the death of a loved one from a car accident. I pray for the families left behind, dealing with their deaths. And you bet I’m praying for my family members each day…for their safety and protection.
I see heartache and sadness every day at Mission of Hope. It can get overwhelming at times. But there’s a saying that I say often. And I say it because I believe it…God is bigger.

I don’t say this flippantly. I say this to encourage. I say it because I’ve experienced God being bigger in my life. But don’t take my word for it. Take what the true Word says:  If God can bring Lazarus back from the dead…If He can part the Red Sea…If He can rain down manna and quail each night in the dessert for the Israelites…If He can heal the blind man, the bleeding woman, the paralyzed man by the pool…If He can raise Jesus from the dead…He also has the power over the stuff in our lives! God is bigger than anything we ever go through, and He is with us as we go through them. He promises that He will never leave us. He will never turn His back on us. And I’m so thankful for this promise. No matter how hard things may seem, we always have hope as long as we cling to God.

And I cling to Him as I walk through this time of transition in my life. I’m trusting Him with all I have. I’m resting in His promises, His truths, and His love. And I pray. That’s all I can do.

If you’re going through something right now, pray and trust God, my friend. He is bigger.
