Thankful Thursdays - God is Big Enough - Isaiah 6

While we certainly have many times in our lives where we experience joy, we live in a fallen and broken world and there is no shortage of sadness, confusion and even grief which is experienced by us and the people we love. We may find ourselves, and the ones we love, wondering where God is and if He is big enough and able to handle the difficult things in our lives. So, today if you are experiencing a difficult time, I want to share these verses from Isaiah with you.

My pastor recently taught from these verses and he said the original language gives the image of how the corner of the hem of God's robe filled the temple. The corner of the hem! Look at the hem on your shirt - look at just the corner of the hem - not the shirt, not the hem, but just the corner of the hem. Now picture how big God is if just the corner of the hem of His robe filled the temple!

Yes, God is big enough to answer your prayers. Yes, God is big enough to do whatever needs to be done in your life and in the lives of the ones you love. And, this very big God has promised to hear, listen to and answer your prayers! (Read Jeremiah 29)

So, today, no matter what you are facing, take heart! Be encouraged and take time to thank this God Who is bigger than we think He is and Who is able to do ever so much more than we are even able to imagine!
