How big our God is!
Who are you spending most of your time with? The world or God? Everyday I am starting to see more and more how easy it is to focus on everything that is wrong in the world. So easy just to see the negative, just to see the problems. It becomes do powerful that it begins to take over your time. We end up sitting with our own worries and negative thoughts more than we actually offer them in prayer. I'll be honest, many times I start forgetting about the power of prayer in those moments. Almost as if the problems of the world become so powerful that I lose sight of God's power. I begin to doubt. That opens up a whole new can of worms that I quite literally sit in. Anyone else have those feelings? It is crazy how blinding negativity and evil can be. The devil is the best distraction and he knows exactly what will take our focus off of God and even start doubting him. Call out those lies! Those problems are NOT bigger than Our God. Prayer is not something passive. And I think it's time we start taking it more seriously and remind ourselves how much we can impact the world simply through prayer. When you feel yourself falling into that pit of worry and negativity of the world...stop...take a moment and say "God come into this moment with me, for you are stronger than any of these lies that surround me." Let us remind the world how Big Our God is through small, simple acts of great love and prayer! Walking Together, Sandra
