God Says

God created the universe with a word.
He molded each of us with dust and breath.
He planned the future of eternity with us in mind.

But you're still frustrated. You're still downtrodden. You're still weary, worn and afraid.
You want answers and comfort, when all you ever seem to get is questions and pain.

Sometimes, we all need a little reminder that God is bigger than it all. His love is over, it's underneath, it's inside, it's in between. His love never ends.

He is bigger than our yesterdays, our today's and our tomorrows. He knew us before we were born, and he knows what eternity holds for us after this life. He is saying, "Don't fear, my child, for I am here." Because when you say things, or fear things, you are telling that thing or that fear that it is bigger than our God. Bigger than our Creator. Bigger than the Maker of the heavens and the earth.

So the next time you feel the weight of this world, remember what God says.

You say, “It’s impossible.”
God says, “All things are possible.” (Luke 18:27)

You say, “I’m too tired.”
God says, “I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:18-20)

You say, “Nobody really loves me.”
God says, “I love you.” (John 3:16 and Jeremiah 31:3)

You say, “I can’t go on.”
God says, “My grace is sufficient.” (2 Corinthians 12:9 and Psalm 91:15)

You say, “I can’t figure things out.”
God says, “I will direct your steps.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

You say, “I can’t do it.”
God says, “You can do all things.” (Philippians 4:13)

You say, “I’m not able.”
God says, “I am able.” (2 Corinthians 9:8)

You say, “It’s not worth it.”
God says, “It will be worth it.” (Romans 8:28)

You say, “I can’t forgive myself.”
God says, “I forgive you.” (1 John 1:9 and Romans 8:1)

You say, “I can’t manage.”
God says, “I will supply all your needs.” (Philippians 4:19)

You say, “I’m afraid.”
God says, “I have not given you a spirit of fear.” (2 Timothy 1:7)

You say, “I’m always worried and frustrated.”
God says, “Cast all your cares on me.” (1 Peter 5:7)

You say, “I’m not smart enough.”
God says, “I give you wisdom.” (1 Corinthians 1:30)

You say, “I feel all alone.”
God says, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)

God is bigger than it all.

Trust in Him.
