Bigger Than It Appears

I’ll never forget the first time Tom and I had the chance to go to the Northwest. We were in-flight when the pilot told us that we would be passing Mt. Rainier and to watch out our window for the spectacular view. There were other mountains below, and I kept thinking…is that it? Is that it? Until we actually saw it! I had no idea how large and beautiful Mt. Rainier was. What I was looking for was small and unimpressive compared to what this grand mountain was in reality. 

How often do I treat God and His Word in the same way? I have expectations that are small in comparison to who God really is.

When I read through Genesis about Jacob with his two wives, Rachel and Leah. With all their jealousies, deceit and lies, I realized that God used these women – despite their ungodly competition to bring about God’s promises.

This is our God. He is bigger and more glorious than I know, and He uses us despite our sinful hearts to display His glory for a watching world. This is why we travel together on Route 66.

While we’re looking through the window of His Word we never know when His glory will fill our eyes in a way we never expected! And we will gasp in awe at how big our God is. 

May His glory fill your window.

Tom and Debi have been sharing encouragements through their blogs for many years. Marriage, Reading God's Word and documenting family history is our focus. Growing in our relationship with the Lord is primary in all we say, write or do. We are grateful for all who desire to join us in the same endeavors.
