He isn’t Santa Claus with an inside list to our good deeds or wishes.
For God is bigger than that.
He isn’t a papa or father time who knows, who endures, and who roots with us for the team on Saturday night.
No, Father God is bigger than that.
He never forgets a heart’s desire, fallen sparrow, unfair turn of events, hurt from a friend, or love who walked away.
Yup. The Lover of our soul is bigger than that.
He always wins, cheers from the ringside seat in the game of our lives, takes the high road to lead us there, and reaches out to lend a hand.
Of course. An infinite God is bigger and even closer than all that.
He heals the broken hearted, feeds the weary wanderer, takes care of the suffering we cannot see in due time:
For our God-Man Jesus’ love is bigger than these too.
His provision exceeds that which we deserve or can even ask
When our yardstick extends to eternity which is bigger than our minds were meant to fathom on earth.
So why do we fret when the trials come as they always do?
Because we have forgotten and need gentle reminders along the way that our
God is bigger than that. Oh yes He is. Alpha and Omega. The beginning and the end. Always was and always will be.
In this we can forever rest. I am so very glad. JJ
