Immeasurably, Immeasurably More
Post #14 (Final Post) of Sarah’s Post-It Note Inspirations Series
God created us to have emotions, to feel things, to be moved. That’s one reason why people are so interesting, because we can all have our own emotions, and even react in different ways to the same scenarios. Emotions make us do things sometimes that we wish we wouldn’t have.
Even though this is true of people, it is not true of God. I do believe what we do can make God happy, sad or angry, but the real difference here is that this does not change His character. It cannot change His steadfast love for us. Our God is much bigger and greater than that.
This statement is kind of hard to explain, but really what I am trying to say is we can’t fit God inside of a box that we create. We can’t declare who God really is based off of our own feelings. We can’t even put Him in a corner, because He is there in every aspect of our life. We can’t make God in our image, because He made us in His.
Not being able to fully understand His perfect character should not discourage us, but give us hope, because we can have full confidence that His ways are higher, and that our all-knowing God has a plan.
Both of these post-it note inspirations really tie back to the idea of God being and doing immeasurably more than we could ever hope for or imagine, thus the title of this post.
Two of my favorite lines from Hilary Scott’s song titled “Still” are: “You’re moving mountains that I don’t even see. You’ve answered my prayer before I even speak.” These words remind me that He is working, even if I can’t see it, and that there are certain things about my future that He has not revealed to me yet for a reason.
With that, I would like to hit home this point again, that God can do immeasurably more than we could ever ask or imagine. Let’s trust Him in that.
May He always be your One Strength.
