Our God is bigger than all our problems, greater than all our failures, more loving than our greatest love, more gracious than our sins, more merciful than we’ll ever understand. Our God is more forgiving than we’ll ever deserve, more just than we can deliver. He is faithful, even when we aren’t. He loves us, even when we fail. He has made us clean, even when we feel so dirty. He lifts us up, even when it seems we have fallen too far. He is there for us and will never leave, even when it seems like everyone else has. He sent his Son to die for us, so that we can be¬†with him. Why is it so hard to follow Him, when he is our answer, our strength, our comfort, our healer, our fortress, our refuge, our forgiver, our caretaker, our Father, our Lord, our King, our God? Often times we are more than willing to serve God and give him our all, but only if he does it for us. If he makes the first move. There have been many times in my life where I was waiting on God to move, when it was he who was waiting on me. In order for God to move in our lives, we have to make a decision to let him and then follow where he takes us.
