Every morning, I have a couple of scriptures that I read through for this devotional. Somedays I just start reading, and one verse leads to another, which leads to another, which leads to another.
Today, as I was reading and thinking, I read one of the passages, and something about it just told me stop, listen, and consider. Consider who it is that you are praying to. Consider who it is that you are listening to. Consider who this God is. Listen to what is says in Revelation 5: 11-13:
Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
But we forget that He is simple other. We try to cram Him into our lives; we try to make Him make sense for us.
When He doesn’t. He is bigger, larger, and more powerful than anything that we could ever imagine.
Go back and read those verses again. Go and look how all of heaven, all of creation, all of life worships Him. Go look. Go consider.
And then stop. And remember, that He hears our prayers. And remember how big He is. Bigger than our problems. Bigger than our worries. Bigger than our fears.
Remember who is He.
And know that He loves you.
We make ourselves and our problems the main thing in life. When in the end, none of that is as grand and glorious as God.
Consider the vastness of God. Consider His power. His holiness. His strength. When your stuff seems so big, remember that it is just a grain of sand compared to God.
We lose perspective. We forget that He really is God. All-powerful, Almighty, Amazing, God. Remember today.
Consider who He is. And then remember this mighty God desires to know and love you. And forgive you. Today and each day.
In all the stuff of life today, let’s remember these things.
