How Big God is?

'No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to humanity. God is faithful and He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation He will also provide a way of escape, so that you are able to escape it.'
1 Corinthians 10 : 13

I remember a story a friend once told me. It was about a man who got stranded in a flood. He climbed onto the roof of his house. He saw the fast rising water and whispered a prayer. Soon, a rescue boat arrived. The man refused to get in the boat because he believed God would help him. After the boat left, a rescue helicopter spotted him. Again, the man refused to get into the copper because he believed God would help him. That night, the man drowned in the flood as the water rose higher than the roof of his house.

What does the story tell us?

The character refused helps from the rescue teams because he thought God would personally help him. And so he waited ….. and he was drowned. Laugh if you like, but God did reach out to him.

God is true to His word. He takes us seriously because we are His children. He will not and will never let even one of us to be lost without His knowledge. He knows our problems, all of them. He knows what kind of life we are leading.

God uses direct and indirect ways us to help us through our problems all the time. If only we pray one humble prayer, He will provide a way to help us out.

What about you?

Do you dare to believe that God loves you? Do you dare to put your own life wholly in God's hand? Do you believe against all odds that God will provide you a way out when you are in trouble? Do you really believe that God has a plan for you?

God is so 'Big' in the sense that He alone creates the Universe with everything in detail. There is nothing He does not know and nothing He does not care.

There is always a hope against hope that God hears our prayers!

Build not just a business, but a successful one!

I share your faith and stand in awe with you at the largeness of God. God is Truth as well as creator.

It is common for Christians to look down upon science and evolution. Judgment here is even common despite our instruction to leave that to

In the Spirit of Truth, I'd like to point out that many quantum scientists believe that at every turn that brings multiple possibilities, God adds all of those possibilties to the reality of creation.

For Christians tempted to judge scientists, I offer for consideration that, right or wrong, those guys believe in a very large God.

What believer thinks he knows the full face of God. If the face we know differs from the face others know, is it possible that each of us has only seen a different part of the whole of God?
