SUNDAY REFLECTIONS

In this sin soaked world satan would have you believe that all your hopes and dreams are dashed.  This world can push against you so much that you feel very small.  But our faith, our believing can be bigger than the oceans. 

WITH GOD THERE IS ALWAYS A BIGGER HOPE

Obstacles and problems can seem too big for us, but did you know we were never meant to carry them all upon our backs in the first place?  No you and I have a great SAVIOR who came to relieve us of that work. 

MATTHEW 5: 3 “BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS THEIRS.”

Our spirits may be low and we can feel quite empty and tired of this world we live in, but that is why JESUS came.  HE came so we would have someone to go to, a SOMEONE to believe in, to believe in, in a mighty big way.

BELIEVE BIGGER

When we do, our circumstances might not immediately change, but our inner being will.  Our belief is bigger with the HOLY SPIRIT’S help. 

ZECHARIAH 4: 6  “NOT BY STRENGTH OR BY MIGHT, BUT BY MY SPIRIT.”

I want to believe bigger, more passionately and see our big GOD for who HE is and to stand in awe don’t you?  It is HIS spirit alone that gives us our faith, hope and more.  Behold HIM, worship HIM daily, revere HIM and know HIM and realize HIS abundant love for you.

ROMANS 5: 5  “THIS HOPE WILL NOT DISAPPOINT US, BECAUSE GOD’S LOVE HAS BEEN POURED OUT IN OUR HEARTS THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO WAS GIVEN TO US.”

I want to believe bigger……..I want to trust more…….LORD grow that desire within me!  I desire to draw near to the ONE who gives me a precious hope and who gives me a solid foundation, assuring a more solid, even radical faith.  I want to believe when no one else will, when others have doubts, I want to believe in the impossible!

JOHN 6: 47  “TRULY I TELL YOU, ANYONE WHO BELIEVES HAS ETERNAL LIFE.”

Notice the above scripture says: anyone.  Isn’t it wonderful that it says: anyone?  GOD wants all to come to HIM and to believe, each in their own way, and to grow their faith daily.  Let’s be the ones wanting a bigger more vibrant faith.  Don’t let the people around you harden your heart.  Guard it above all else, pouring into it GOD’S daily word.  Because when you believe bigger, you love bigger and care for those around you in a big way.

Believing bigger is trusting in a big GOD and letting go.  Put your life into HIS hands and realize HE is working all the time on your behalf.  Believing bigger is knowing that one day we will be in the presence of our BIG GOD because one day we will be right where JESUS is!

1 PETER 1: 8-9  “THOUGH YOU HAVE NOT SEEN HIM, YOU LOVE HIM; THOUGH NOT SEEING HIM NOW, YOU BELIEVE IN HIM, AND YOU REJOICE WITH INEXPRESSIBLE AND GLORIOUS JOY, BECAUSE YOU ARE RECEIVING THE GOAL OF YOUR FAITH, THE SALVATION OF YOUR SOULS.”

  1. “I want to believe bigger, more passionately and see our big GOD for who HE is and to stand in awe don’t you? ” — YES!!
    I stand amazed with you at the glorious working of our God and Saviour, Jesus Christ! We never walk alone.
    Your post brings my thoughts to Matthew 11.28 – 30: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
