God is BIGGER than we are stupid!!

God is BIGGER than we are stupid!!

I know what you are thinking. What did she just say?  Years ago a friend told me this truth and it has stuck with we.  Whenever I don't understand what direction that my life is heading or the circumstances I find myself in, I throw my hands into the air and say, "God is bigger than I am stupid"! 

Think of it this way.
If you trust Him
If you believe that He is in control.
If you know that he created the heavens and the earth

Then our doubts and fears don't even compare to His vastness, beauty or power. I have learned to give in and get out of the way. Currently I have been wrestling with something that I don't understand and so just this morning, up went my hands and I said God is bigger than I am Stupid.  In essence, God, you win! 

Remember when you were little and you would wrestle with friends or siblings.  What was the cry that was heard from the one giving in?  Uncle! It was the sign that you had enough and that you recognized your place.  Animals do this all the time.  They have their little tussles and then ultimately one of them backs off and takes a servant position. 

That is what I feel when I throw my hands into the air.  I am saying, "You God- are the potter and I am the clay. Mold me, melt me, break me, re-use me in any way that you seem necessary.

I am saying,
                     "You are God and I am NOT!"

I am recognizing the truth of Isaiah 45:12
It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.  

If you are struggling with
  • Attitudes
  • Behaviors
  • Circumstances
  • Death
  • Encouragement
  • Friendships
  • Grudges
  • Health
  • Insecurity
  • Jealousy
  • Kindness
  • Love
  • Marriage
  • Nearness to God
  • Ongoing doubt
  • Paying your bills
  • Quietness
  • Reconciliation
  • Sin
  • Trust
  • Unresolved anger
  • Vision
  • Wants
  • Xtra possesions
  • Zoo of a life!
Take a moment and ask God to show you his bigness!  In a moment of surrender, throw those hands up and tell him that he is bigger than any problem, circumstance or attitude that is in your life. I promise it will give you a new perspective and you just might laugh in the middle of it.  A little joy for tough times.

Thank you for reminding me that you are in control.  As I raise my hands to you I confess that you indeed are bigger than I am stupid.  I put my trust in you. Thank you for looking at me and hearing my requests. Help me to keep my heart and mind focused on you and on your will.
