God is almighty and all-powerful. There is nothing He can’t do and there is no one bigger and stronger than Him. To Him belong greatness and power. He is full of love and full of hope. You will never meet anyone more loving than the Lord. You will never meet anyone more hopeful than the Lord. Nothing is impossible to God and His love is the biggest love in the universe and yet we don’t get to know Him well. We have a limited version of God and unless we spend time in the Word and work on our faith, we will know a limited God. That is not the real God. That is not the true representation of God. When we get saved, our spirits are born again but our minds are the same.
We get to know God through our limited and non-renewed minds. It’s something I had not thought about when I first became a Christian. I saw some of the great things Jesus could do. I read the Bible and marveled at the Lord’s majesty but I had a limited and a small God mentality. It took me years before I started working on my vision of God. He is so merciful that I had many glimpses of His greatness. Every glimpse helped. Every glimpse made Him a little bigger. Today I am here to encourage you to work on your vision of God and to let Him grow in your mind and in your heart. You might have a big God now but He can always get bigger so to speak.
The Bible says that without faith we can’t please God. Like I said before, God is full of love. If we don’t have faith He doesn’t hate us and He is not disappointed in us but faith connects us to Him. Faith is what allows us to know God and to see Him. Now, there is a spectrum of faith. Our faith can be a mustard seed or it can be the size of a mountain and anything in between. A mustard seed of faith is enough. We can’t get discouraged if we have little faith because God can work with what we have. With the mustard seed of faith we can see the impossible take place in our lives. We have to keep working on it. We ought to use that mustard seed and expand it so that our vision of God gets bigger. A small God won’t get us far. A vision of a small God won’t get us far. Let me share what helped me with my vision of God.
The Word of God tells us that God is omnipresent. He is everywhere all the time. I meditated on that for a while. I read in Romans chapter 8 that nothing could separate us from God’s love. That blew my mind. It means that I could be stuck at the bottom of the ocean and God would still be there. I thought of the worst places I could imagine and realized that God would be there with me. There is nowhere in the world that you and I could be without God. There are no situations where we are without God. He is that powerful. He is that big. I have traveled to a few countries on different continents and God was there every time. He is so big. He has no limitations so we need to take the limits off of God in our thinking.
Think about the great things the Lord did in the Bible and the things He has done in your life. Focus on His greatness by thinking of His amazing accomplishments. Think about His miracles. Don’t consider them as things of the past. His miracles are still available today. God is as big today as He was when He parted the Red Sea for the Israelites when they were led by Moses. He is still as big as when He turned water into wine. He still as big as when He did something for you that took you by surprise. Your last breakthrough was not the end of your blessings. It was just a part of a continuation of miracles that will keep happening as you fine tune your vision of God.
Expect great things. Expect miracles. Expect your big God to do the impossible. Expect positive and breathtaking changes in your life. Expect the God of miracles to be your God. He is. You just need to embrace that truth and to keep it alive in your spirit and in your mind. Don’t limit God because of some personal experiences that have gone wrong. Expand God and stretch your mind. Wherever you are, God is with you. Whatever you are going through, God is with you. The almighty God of the Bible is your God. Enjoy Him! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
