God Is Greater

Each of these devotional blogs entries is meant to be read on your own or if you have family or friends you live with, to be read together aloud. A suggestion is to do this after you have dinner around the table together. At the conclusion, please spend time in personal reflection or in sharing with one another your answers to the questions at the end. Be sure to conclude with prayer.
Read Psalm 90
“Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” Psalm 90:1-2
I am so thankful that from an early age, I understood that God was greater than any of the life situations I was having or would ever have. God is greater because He has always lived and always will live, and He is not limited in any way. There’s a children’s song that says, “My God is so big, so strong, and so mighty, there’s nothing my God cannot do.” No matter how small or how big our situation is, God is still greater. Dwell in Him. God has been in control from the beginning of time, before the mountains or even the earth, for that matter. God was before and after all. Dwell in Him. I believe that God is still in control and that He is still greater because we know that God never changes.
His ability to help us overcome our troubles is not just a guess. Isaiah 40:28 says, “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.” We cannot even imagine or begin to understand how it is possible for God to be greater that our situations, yet here is it! Read it again.
Dwell on the fact that even though you cannot understand how God could be greater than and in control of all things doesn’t make it any less true.
God is greater!
