How big is your God? Is He big enough to part the Red Sea, collapse walls with a shout, heal the sick, give sight to the blind, walk on water, feed thousands with a few loaves, rise from the dead, forgive you? Yeah, He’s that big, even much bigger really. We should never be amazed at what He does, we should expect it! We need to go to Him with prayers of faith, believing, expecting Him to do great things. We’re told in Hebrews to come boldly to the throne of grace. Jesus said we don’t receive because we don’t ask. Now, we’re not talking like Janis Joplin, “Oh Lord, won’t You buy me a Mercedes Benz, my friends all have Porsches, I must make amends.” But when you pray, don’t put God in a box, limit Him with small prayers, He’s big, He knows what you need, ask Him! He can do big things. If the widow with Elisha had a countless supply of jars, the oil would have kept flowing. How big and how many jars do bring for the Lord to fill? The days ahead will probably get worse before better, but don’t focus on them. Keep your eyes upon the Lord, watch His mighty hand at work, and pray without doubting for Him to do big things in your life!
