Greater Than All!

Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you. (1 Pet. 5:7) 

God is indeed greater than all of our cares and circumstances!

If this is the case, the how do we go about placing our faith in God and remaining firm in our trust that God is greater than our cares and circumstances? So many of us (including myself) have always given intellectual assent to God and His Word. Depending our upbringing and the course we have chosen in our spiritual pilgrimage, this can continue to be true for you right now as you read this. 

Obviously, giving intellectual assent to God and everything related to God will only drive us crazy because God's ways of doing things usually goes against our natural human tendencies. In order to counteract those natural human tendencies and be able to not only anchor our faith, but also remaining firm in Him, we must have a humble disposition to Him and recognize our place in His presence. The following scripture verse says it all.

"Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:" (1 Pet. 5:6) 

There's no doubt in my mind that there will always be moments where our faith and trust in God will be shaken. It is in those critical times where we must approach God like we would approach our closest family member or friend.  The root of our issue here is trust. If we don't trust God with the concerns we are confronted with, then how can we possibly trust ourselves or anyone else for that matter given our finite understand and shortcomings as limited people?

As we humble ourselves and be honest with ourselves and God, then it will become possible to be honest and truthful with those people that God places around us. On a personal note, I have often learned this the hard way by being stripped of everything and everyone that I loved. I had to take a long, hard look at myself and my life before being able to come to the conclusion that humility is the key to acknowledging the greatness of God and the greatness of those God brings into my life.

Thank you so much for reading this far friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name my friends! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!...:-). Without any further delay, I want to bring to all of you Greater Than All by Hillsong Live. Here's the lyrics below...ENJOY!!!...:-D

Call out Your Name in the darkness
And watch as Your glory unfolds

With many too vast for our words
