SCRIPTURE FOCUS: “Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.” (Jeremiah 32:17)
In this short word of encouragement, I wanted to remind you that God is bigger than your doctor’s report, the obstacles that seem insurmountable, the news that seems devastating, the fears and problems that try to strangle you, the discouragement that ravages your soul, and the depression that weighs you down…GOD IS BIGGER!
If you are in the middle of a plight always remember that the fight (battle) belongs to God! 2 Chronicles 20:15 reminds us of this biblical truth: “…. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.”
If I’m speaking to you or someone you might know I encourage you to #read God’s word (2 Tim 3:16), #reflect on God’s word (Psalm 16:7) #remember God’s faithfulness (Deut 7:9), #rejoice in God’s victory (Psalm 118:15-17)!
When we practice or apply these 4 spiritual truths in our lives, we are able to let go of the burdens, the discouragement, and the anxiety, and turn our attention, instead, to the power of God (Phil 4:6-7). I hope and pray for the Lord to open the eyes of your heart (Eph 1:18) so that you can experience a perception shift! I guarantee you that your spirit will feel a million times lighter, as you submit to God and these spiritual truths.
The good news is our Heavenly Father is so much bigger than anything that seeks to overwhelm and destroy us. Never forget that as you and I continue to look to Him, He is able to handle what we cannot.
