God is so big that He fills the universe! He is bigger than Earth. He is bigger than our Solar System. He is bigger than our Milky Way Galaxy and bigger than even a cluster of galaxies. Francis Chan, the author of Crazy Love, talks about what he calls "the awe factor of God" in this three minute video.
On a more personal level, is God big enough to handle your problems? Is He larger than the grand scheme of your dreams? Can He guide the course of your career and the steps of your children simultaneously? Has it ever occurred to you that God is bigger than your budget, and when there's too much month left at the end of the money, there is still more of God's divine provision? Does He see in the dark, and in your heart? Can He hold you in your failures and in your triumphs?
In Matthew 6:5-13 Jesus talks about how to pray, "When you pray." His requests are simple and sums up the needs of man; God's will, our daily bread, a two-way forgiveness, and deliverance from evil. You can say all you need to say to God in a 25 second prayer. The problem is most of our prayers are too short. They never get to the beginning. Jesus' prayer began with faith..."Our Father who is in heaven..." Wow! He is our Dad and He is in Heaven! How lucky can we be?! We have an audience with the God of the universe and He is related to us. Talk about nepotism! Nepotism is defined as "favoritism granted to relatives regardless of merit." That sums up our position, doesn't it?
What ever it is you need, whether you are unemployed, sick, scared, or need comfort in a loss you have suffered, when you pray... start with our Father who is in heaven. You will end up with more than you ever dreamed.
