The current monthly topical Bible reading plan, God Is Bigger, washed over me anew yesterday. I have been looking at the months ahead with a great deal of uncertainty and even fear for various reasons. Through the Holy Spirit speaking to my heart, I was reminded of the power of praying Scripture back to God.
Whenever I’ve heard teaching on the concept of praying Bible verses back to God, the context has been that we can remind God of his promises. And certainly that is wonderful! But yesterday and today, I felt impressed to pray the verses we’ve been reading in the Bible reading challenge this month, realizing God is bigger than our difficulties.
I discovered two benefits of praying these “God is bigger” verses back to God. First, he receives the glory he deserves. Secondly, I receive the reminder of how great God is! Perhaps that seems simple to you, but for me, in the moment, praying God’s glory back to him became revolutionary!
Today I’m encouraging you to pray this prayer to remember God is bigger than whatever you are facing.
A Prayer to Remember God Is Bigger
No one is like you.
You are great
And your name is mighty in power.
Your power created the earth
And your wisdom founded the world.
The galaxies were stretched out
By your understanding.
You thunder and water pours from heaven.
The clouds rise at your calling
And the lightning flashes at your command.
You whisper the wind into motion.
You are the Maker of all things-
the Lord Almighty.
Whatever comes my way today,
I know that You are bigger.
Thank you, Jesus.
Based on Jeremiah 10:6-16
