“Be humble. The world is bigger than your view of the world. And certainly, God is much bigger than your view of God.”
When I first read this quote it really stood out me and really resonated with me personally.I feel like countless times I put God in a box and say, “okay God today I trust you with this and this but I can handle this” and this and the truth is The Lord wants us to come to Him with all of our burdens and thanks because He is there for us and loves us He never intended for us to be burdened with something. I tend to only allow God to handle the thing that are going bad in life but I don’t want him to touch what is going good in life because I am content and the truth is, what is bad The Lord has a plan for and can make better and, what is good The Lord has a plan for and can make greater. I love Ephesians 3:19-20 says,
“and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
This is a great reminder to know how much God loves us and wants the best for us when we allow Him and trust Him, He is able to do more than we ever could imagined!!!
