Last Tuesday in staff prayer we sang "Our God."
Afterwards we discussed this is as close to a "taunting" song that we sing. Then we starting sharing "taunts"... "my Dad is bigger than your dad". It really got me to thinking about who God is and what He has done. I'm not very good at bowing up and "throwing my weight around." But I do know that I serve a big God and His truth is worth putting out there. So here are some that were shared and some more that God reminded me of...
Our God is so great that He allows a righteous man to be thrown into a lion's den so that an entire nation will know that He is faithful.
Our God is so powerful that He allows a man to disobey Him, then uses a big fish to call Him back to obedience.
Our God is so good that He redeems sexual abuse for His glory and the survivors good.
Our God is so great that He covers us with His hand in the cleft of the rock when our enemies are out to get us.
Our God is so loving that He allows His only Son to be nailed to a cross to pay for our sins so that we can be intimate with a Holy God.
Our God is so big that He gives confidence to a little shepherd boy to stand against a foe and win with just a small stone.
Our God is so precise that He knocks down the walls of a fortified city after His people just walk around it and yell.
Our God is so compassionate that He waits to return so that all come to know Him and are saved from an eternity separated from Him.
Our God is so in control that that no one is put into power unless He allows it.
Our God is a healer of pain that the enemy thought would destroy us.
Our God is a Father to the fatherless.
Our God's love changes hearts where His people want to give of their time, talents and treasures for others above their own comfort.
Our God provides for single moms who need vehicles through the abundance He gave to others in His body.
Our God is so powerful that He moves a heart to trust when no trust should be there.
I feel like I could go on and on...
It really is such a fun exercise to go back and think about stories in the Bible as well as stories I see all around me where God is making His name more famous through His Word and His people. So grateful to get to watch and be counted in His stories!
