My God is So Big

We recently taught our 3 year old the song My God Is So Big. You know the one…

My God is so big,
So strong and so mighty,
There’s nothing my God cannot do.
The mountains are His, the valleys are His,
The stars are His handiwork too.
My God is so big,
So strong and so mighty,
There’s nothing my God cannot do.

 Every so often, Jaxon will break into song all by himself. He leaves out most of the words, so it usually goes something like this, complete with hand motions, “God, BIG, STRONG, nothing, God” (insert shaking head and pointer finger). 

Whenever I hear Jaxon singing this song in his little way, I feel a little bit smacked in the face by child-like faith and the absolute truth that abounds in these words. Even though I don’t think Jaxon really understands yet what he’s singing, there is a level of utter belief on his face. All he knows about God, is what we tell him. And if we tell him that God is big and strong, he does not even question it. So why then, do we as adults question the very same thing? We have been told by our parents, pastors, Sunday School teachers and even God Himself, that He IS big, strong, and perfectly capable of handling all of our problems. And yet…what? What do we do? Put God in a box? Assume that whatever problem we are facing is somehow beyond His scope of understanding or ability to handle, or, worse yet, beyond His desire to handle? 

It matters not what you are facing; disappointment, loneliness, pain, loss, God sees and God cares. This is not something that is up for debate. It is not true yesterday, maybe true today, but probably not true tomorrow. It does not change with the weather. It is not based on our emotions or the emotions of people around us. It is an absolute truth. My God is so big. There’s nothing my God cannot do. Sink your teeth into this one. Grab onto it and never let go. God is unwavering. I challenge you to be unwavering in your belief that God is strong and mighty. Learn the song if you don’t already know it and sing it out loud when life starts to get a little messy. Put emphasis on the key words like this:

My God is so BIG
So STRONG and so MIGHTY
There’s NOTHING my God cannot do.

Search Scripture to find verses containing God’s promises about His power and might and meditate on them. Memorize them and walk in faith.
