If God is your partner, make your plans BIG - D.L. Moody

How Big is Your God?

3 Sep 2014 Ruth L Snyder

D L Moody Quote

There is a lot to be discouraged about in this world. We don’t have to listen to the news long to hear about wars, violence, destruction, and every sort of evil. Instead of focusing on the negative, today I’m choosing to focus on God. I hope you’re encouraged as you join me in celebrating our God.

Stuart Hamblin captures it well in his song, How Big is God?

Though men may strive to go beyond the reach of space
To crawl beyond the distant shining stars,
This world’s a room so small within my Master’s house
The open sky’s but a portion of his yard.

How big is God, how big and wide is His vast domain
To try to tell these lips can only start,
He’s big enough to rule His mighty universe
Yet small enough to live within my heart.

As winter chill may cause the tiny seed to fall
To lie asleep till waked by summer’s rain;
The heart grown cold will warm and trod with life anew
The Master’s touch will bring the glow again.

How big is God, how big and wide is His vast domain
To try to tell these lips can only start,
He’s big enough to rule His mighty universe
Yet small enough to live within my heart.
