How Great Is Your God?

“If God were small enough to be understood, He would not be big enough to be worshiped.” - Evelyn Underhill

We often sing the song, “How Great Is Our God.” We have such enthusiasm when singing it, with such a tone that becomes more of a statement than a question. The bible says to be prepared to give an account if asked.

“Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.” 1 Peter 3:15

Sometimes in this world it’s hard to keep God on a pedestal. We often times will blame God or question Him saying, “Why would you let this happen?” The truth is that there is a clear and present evil in this world that we often forget about, and the enemy would love nothing more than to see God on the stand. We have free will in this life, and God gives us a choice to love him.

I watched the movie, “A Winter’s Tale,” and one of the characters stated that where good lives, evil lives. How true of this world…it seems like when something great is about to happen in your life, evil almost always tries to thwart it. That’s where God can step in, if you let him. He can move mountains. (Mark 11:23) We all have a testimony to share, if we are alive on this earth, and sometimes it helps to look back over the year, and meditate on all the things He has done. Everything good comes from God. It helps to keep a journal.

"When the whole nation had finished crossing the Jordan, the LORD said to Joshua, "Choose twelve men from among the people, one from each tribe, and tell them to take up twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan, from right where the priests are standing, and carry them over with you and put them down at the place where you stay tonight. So Joshua called together the twelve men he had appointed from the Israelites, one from each tribe, and said to them, "Go over before the ark of the LORD your God into the middle of the Jordan. Each of you is to take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, to serve as a sign among you. In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD. When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever." - Joshua 4:1-7

We need to remember our victories, so that when we come to our next river crossing in life, we will have enough to lay a foundation, for future victories. It will be a foundation that will exist forever into other generations. If you are still looking to have that experience with God that takes away all doubt of who He is, then all you have to do is find a quiet place and ask Him for that experience.

Ready to accept a gift freely given by your creator?

God gives us reward for dilligently seeking him, but if we never seek Him, how would we know what's to come, or where to go or how to get through each milestone? He gave us a blueprint - the Bible - His never changing undisputable word, and His holy spirit to guide us into knowledge and truth. Have you accepted Jesus invitation? If not here's how:


Dear God

I believe that Jesus Christ is Your only begotten Son

That He came to our earth in the flesh and died on the cross to take away all of my sins and the

sins of this world, and give us eternal life.

I now confess to You all of the wrong and sinful things that I have ever

done in my life. I ask that You please forgive me and wash away all of my sins

by the blood that You have personally shed for me on the cross.

I am now ready to accept You as my personal Lord and Savior. I now ask that You come into my

life and live with me for all of eternity


If you have repeated this prayer, you are on your way to a new life in Jesus Christ! Any questions, feel free to leave them in my comment box.

      Let all the earth rejoice "How Great is Our God." This is a song I use to lead congregations into worship, but it also is one I sing to my God at home. God is faithful even when we are not. He is God, all by Himself.

      Great article. God is enough. Even faithful Christians don't give Him the glory and credit when hard times hit. I have been going through a difficult time myself after losing a lot. I have to go back to God every day for strength to get over my own anxiety or worry.
