God Is Bigger

God [is] our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalms 46:1

Some times I forget how big God is. I forget that God is so big that heaven is His throne and Earth is His footstool(Isaiah 66:1).

I usually lose focus of this when troubles arise in my life. Just because the focus is on my circumstance doesn’t mean that God has changed. God is still bigger then the problems and situations that I face. So, I hope my next go around is with my focus on who He is not what I can do.

I share this Hymn with you today to remind us how Big God is in times of sorrow, troubles, fears, anxiety, worries, & frustration’s.

The words to: WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS

What a Friend we have in Jesus,

 all our sins and griefs to bear!

What a privilege to carry

everything to God in prayer!

 O what peace we often forfeit,

 O what needless pain we bear,

All because we do not carry

everything to God in prayer.

 

Have we trials and temptations?

Is there trouble anywhere?

We should never be discouraged;

 take it to the Lord in prayer.

Can we find a friend so faithful

 who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our every weakness;

take it to the Lord in prayer.

 

Are we weak and heavy laden,

cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Savior, still our refuge,

take it to the Lord in prayer.

 Do your friends despise, forsake you?

Take it to the Lord in prayer!

In His arms He’ll take and shield you;

you will find a solace there.

 

 Blessèd Savior, Thou hast promised

 Thou wilt all our burdens bear

May we ever, Lord, be bringing all to

Thee in earnest prayer.

Soon in glory bright unclouded

there will be no need for prayer

Rapture, praise and endless worship

will be our sweet portion there
