God is great
“Do not be terrified by them, for the LORD your God, who is among you, is a great and awesome God” Deuteronomy 7:21.
What do you imagine when you hear the word God? What is he like? How much power does He have? Can He interfere in your life and change hopeless, miserable and pathetic situation you are in? Or do you think you have to fight for Him and defend Him? What size of God do you have? Do you fit in His pocket or He fits in yours? A lot of questions, but if you want to have a better understanding of who God is and how great He is you have to ask those questions.
To tell the truth it is very difficult to answer the question without knowing any information about Him. If you need to see the right size of God you need to look in the book of Genesis, where He creates the light, the sky, land and seas, plants and trees, the sun and the moon, all fish and birds, and finally human beings (you and me) according to His image and likeness. I hope you see the size of true God now.
So, if you think your god cannot protect you and save you, you’d better think what kind of god you serve. Is He the Creator of universe and the stars, or is he the god that you made. If you made a god, you are the creator and your god is your servant. But this kind of god is powerless to change your life and help you when you are in trouble. I am not attacking other religions. I do not have such intention. I am simply asking if you know the real God and his power. If not, it might be the best time to get to know Him.
