The video ‘How Great is Our God’, shown above, is probably the most inspirational talk I’ve ever seen. I’ll only give you a few sentences description, then I’ll let Louie Giglio wow you for the 40 odd minutes where you will feel small, yet humbled and purposeful as well. A speech about the smallness of Earth and the bigness of God, this notion that God is too big for my problems, to scary for me to approach, is not uncommon. In fact it is the reverse. I mean, when I first saw this video, I felt emotions of awe and wonder, and I was amazed at the ability of a God who carved the oceans, the earth, the sky, the animals and man from dust, from the palm of His hand. I was astounded by the very fact that God holds the universe in his hands; even the ever expanding universe is like a microscopic dot in comparison to Him. So I guess it’s natural to feel afraid! To feel like you’re not worthy of being in the presence of such a holy and all powerful God. I mean, God speaks and inanimate objects like the rocks and trees will cry out to and bow before Him. So our problems are insignificant right?
Wrong! In fact God is very interested in you and me. Very much devoted in our lives! Remember, the same God who is in command of everything that has ever existed, is yearning to be with each and every one of us, and the very same God sent Jesus to the cross 2000 + years ago to die for our sin in our place so that each one of us can experience eternal life with Him someday. He took the punishment upon Himself so that humanity could live. Now if that’s not sacrifice, I don’t know what is. Now, that should blow your minds, that God loves us, likes us, and wants to be our Father. While I was watching this above encouraging video, I was also reminded about the new Paul Baloche single ‘The Same Love’, where it was described that the God who is personable and relatable to us is the same God who was, who is, and who always will be. That’s very encouraging! He would even have sacrificed Himself even if there was only you living on Earth. That’s how special you are.
So whenever you are feeling down, a dose of Louie Giglio’s messages will bring you right back up, and remember, you can talk to God whenever you want to, even in the early hours of the morning… Just talk to him, like you’re talking to a mate (if you’re not sure how to pray!), and you’d be surprised with the results. God is surely big, as shown in the video, and He is a lot more things. But above all He is Savior, Healer, Restorer, Father, Lover, Redeemer, Friend. He is not as scary as many make Him out to be, in fact He is always someone who you definitely want in your corner and God always keeps His promises.
Now, a parting word of advice. Whenever you feel daunted, afraid, scared, nervous, apprehensive, confused, whatever emotion that you have bottled up inside; and you feel you can’t tell anyone, God is there. He understands and you can tell Him. He is a good listener, and guaranteed you will feel better and something good will come of it. God is always invested in our lives! So what are you waiting for? Take a leap of faith! God is here, and waiting for you…
