How Big Is Your God?
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matt 6:33-34; KJV). This verse in Matthews gospel is part of an exhortation that we should not worry about the things we need, as God will supply. God answers all of our prayers as long as we ask according to his word (1 John 5:14-15) and in faith (Mark 11:24). In fact, Jesus said to Martha before he raised Lazarus from the dead: “Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God" (John 11:40)?
As Christians we sometimes need to learn to take the limits off of God, to let him out of the tiny box of expectations that we keep him in. We serve a mighty God, one who created the universe and each of us (Gen 1). James tells us that: “every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17). That’s every good and perfect gift, and notice it says that God does not change.
The Bible tells us that God wants to open the floodgates of heaven on our lives and pour out so great a blessing that we cannot contain it (Mal 3:10). In Ephesians it is written that our God can: “do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Eph 3:20) and in First Corinthians (2:9) Paul tells us that man cannot fathom, grasp or appreciate with his senses all that God has for those who love him.
If we genuinely love and seek after God it is his heart to bless us in every way possible!
