My God is Bigger, and I Can Prove It

Written By: Shannon Geurin

Sometimes I get overwhelmed when I look back at the way God has carried me over the years. He has carried me during my darkest times. Times when I couldn’t feel Him. Times when I questioned whether he even loved me.  Listen friends, if He can heal me and bring freedom to me that He can do the same for you! We serve a big God my friends, and if you need proof today,

I got yo proof.

I went horseback riding while I was at New Life Ranch last weekend. It was quite the experience. My horses name was Stickers. Stickers carried me down a trail that was winding, rocky and steep. As he carried me up that oh-so-steep path I was reminded of the way Jesus carries us.

I was reminded of how strong my Jesus is. 

I don’t know how that horse did it. It was rocky. I’m not talking pebbles folks. I’m talkin’ rocks. Like-  big, sharp edged-y type rocks. The kind of rocks that I, in no way, shape or form would be able to walk on without tough soled shoes on my feet; much less added weight to carry?!! Stickers had no problem. He carried me up the trail. Not gonna lie, it was scary. At any moment Stickers could have gotten tired and dropped me or even fell. But he didn’t. He didn’t because he’s strong. When we got to the top, the view was literally INCREDIBLE. I thought to myself; wow…it was so worth it. The journey was worth it.

Jesus carries us you guys.

God carries us in his arms. Psalm 68:1 #hecarriesus #heisSTRONG

When you don’t feel him anywhere around He is carrying you. He’s holding you. If you’ll stick with him…if you’ll keep your eyes focused on HIM… He will carry you. He will carry you the whole way. When it’s rocky, He’s there. When it’s steep, He’s there. And when you finally reach the top, the view will be amazing. You can’t see the view if you don’t go through the rocky, winding road!

If He can bring healing and restoration to my marriage after it was completely wrecked by infidelity, He can do the same for you!

If He can bring freedom and heal this heart that was full of shame and guilt, wondering if I’d ever be able to be the wife and mother to my family, He can do the same for you!

He took my daughters, held their hearts and whispered “oh how I love you” into their child-like ears.

He healed my daughter’s brain when she was still in my womb, so listen up mamma- He can do the same for you!

He took my friend’s heart, after it had been trampled into the ground and He has given her wholeness and healing. This dear friend and her children have been through the darkest of times anyone can imagine and now she is getting ready to marry a man who truly loves her. I’m telling you, God is BIGGER.

Those are just a few of the things my God has done for me and those I love.

GOD IS BIGGER.

 

But just in case you still don’t believe me- here’s some scripture to back it up.

  • Psalm 147:4 He counts the stars and calls them all by name.
  • Isaiah 40:12 Who else has held the oceans in his hand? Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers? Who else knows the weight of the earth or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale?
  • Psalm 147:5 How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension!
  • Psalm 8:3-4 (one of my fav’s) When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers; the moon and the stars you set in place, what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them?

So- imagine that we’re having a cup of coffee together and listen to me and lean in.

God has you, do you hear me?

He did NOT bring you this far to let you sink!  NO.HE.DID.NOT.

He’s BIGGER than your fear!

He’s BIGGER than your doubt and unbelief!

He’s BIGGER than your mistake! SO.MUCH.BIGGER.

He’s BIGGER than your shame.

He’s BIGGER than your disease.

Oh, my dear friend…HE’S BIGGER.

Let God be big in your life so that the devil can be weak!

Let God be big in your life so that the devil can be weak! #GodisBIGGER

Good grief he made the ocean! Who does that?? {god} He knows how many hairs we have on our heads?! I mean…I have every confidence that my hubby loves the daylights out of me, every confidence in the world. But he doesn’t know how many hairs I have on my head?! He doesn’t love me that much???! But.God.Does.

God is huge. He’s infinite. Every part of life begins AND ends with Him. He is eternal.

That’s not the cool part, though. The cool part is that even though God is big…he stoops down ever so low tohear our hearts cry for help. There’s no one like Him. No one. Give your problems to Him. Draw upon His strength that He gives freely.

Are you going through a season of doubt? Hurt? Shame? Oh my friend -cling to His promises in the verses I quoted above. He’s there with you right now!
