“But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain you; how much less this house that I have built.”
1 Kings 8:27 ASV
God is so big and cannot be contained. Even Solomon the wisest man on earth acknowledged this truth.
He knew that the temple he built could not contain the God of the Universe.
We know God is big but do we REALLY know it?
The way we see God is determined by the way we have been conditioned in the past. That can be by people close to us, TV, news, books we have read and so much more.
But that needs to change. We need the limitations broken because God is crazy big.
This week I cried out to Him to break the box I have put Him in. There are so many big things I am trusting Him for and I feel like there are limitations I have put on Him. Sometimes we put Him in a box without even knowing it.
But, God doesn’t not stay in a box.
The only way we can break the negative conditioning about God’s bigness and greatness is by immersing ourselves in the Word of God which is the Truth. We need an increase of God’s presence in our daily lives because this is the thing, God is big but our view of God is small at times. So when we consume more of His Word and get into His presence our perception of God begins to get bigger, it begins to grow.
We need to reprogram our minds with the Word of God.
God wants to perform miracles in our lives but if we only see a weak, powerless and feeble God then how is that going to happen? Remember the Israelites and what they said when they arrived to the land God promised them?
“Let’s go at once to take the land, he said. We can certainly conquer it!
But the other men who had explored the land with him disagreed. We can’t go up against them! They are stronger than we are! So they spread this bad report about the land among the Israelites: “The land we traveled through and explored will devour anyone who goes to live there. All the people we saw were huge. We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. Next to them we felt like grasshoppers, and that’s what they thought too.”
Numbers 13:30-33 NLT
God doesn’t stay in a box. He is crazy big, He is the God of the universe and nothing is too big for Him. There is nothing He can’t do.
God break the box we have put you in and the limitations we have put on You!
Show us your greatness and awesomeness anew again!
Bless you friends
