Have you ever thought about just how big God is? If not, then I want to encourage you to do something. Go out tonight and stand in the middle of a big field. Look up at all the stars and as far as you can see. Then think about how big God must be to create something that is so big that we can’t even comprehend how big it is. And then think about this: that God is the same God that we pray to everyday.
That is a pretty awesome thought isn’t it? It is easy for us to forget just how big God is. It is easy for us to bring God down to our level and to get a very limited view of what God can do. That is one of the reasons I love Bible stories so much. The stories of David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lion’s Den, Noah’s Ark, and so many others remind us how big God is and that He is capable of doing more than we could ever imagine.
This Sunday, we are going to take a look at another amazing story from Scripture. The story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel from I Kings 18. And in this story we will see that Elijah understands that God is really big, and that he wants others to understand that too. I invite you to come on out to The River this Sunday and be reminded of how big God is and what that means for how we live our lives.
