Our Great God!
I am here to say that our God is Greater! What do I mean by this? Recently we started to sing a newer song in our church written by Chris Tomlin called "Our God". In the lines of the chorus, it goes like the following: "Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other."
These words are truly biblical and inspiring to our Christian walk because of the fact that God is greater! He is stronger! He is higher that any gods that we have struggled with! If you have ever struggled with putting anything before God in worship, please know that He is greater! If you may be struggling with any hang-ups, addictions, sin in general that's trying to take over as a god....little "g"....Our God is stronger! Solomon saw the greatness of God when he was preparing to build the temple. Take a look at 2 Chronicles 2:5-6a
"And the temple which I build [will be] great, for our God is greater than all gods. But who is able to build Him a temple, since heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him?" Solomon was EXACTLY right! Who can contain our GREAT God?!!
Another example of this is written by the Psalmist in Psalms 135:5... "For I know that the LORD [is] great, And our Lord [is] above all gods." I am SO thankful that we serve the LIVING GOD! My prayer is that you serve Him too!
You see, Satan is prowling trying to get us to serve him. He loves to distract, deceive, destroy...the horrible reality... he wants us to serve other gods before our Mighty God....BIG "G". However, we have a promise that is written in 1 John 4:4 - "You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world." Aren't you glad that our God is greater than he who is in the world? Again....Our God is greater...stronger...and higher
The other powerfully biblical part of the song that we sing in church, "Our God" written by Chris Tomlin, is in the bridge:
“And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us? And if our God is with us, then what could stand against? And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us? And if our God is with us, then what could stand against? What could stand against."
Wow! This whole section of the song is based on the verse that comes from Romans 8:31...and what a promise it is! Romans 8:31- "What then shall we say to these things? If God [is] for us, who [can be] against us?"
I am so thankful that as a child of God through Jesus Christ, He is for me. My prayer is that you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. He wants you to be his child and be for you! He is our Great God!
I could go on and on about the biblical message of the song, "Our God", and explain the miracles of Jesus Christ at the beginning of the song, but, I'll leave that to your Bible reading. God bless you. It is great to worship with you.
