Our God

The world is big but God has overcome the world.
Satan is powerful but God has defeated Satan through Jesus.
We are weak but God is strong.
Life can be overwhelming but God is for us.
We are limited but God is infinite.

To quote Chris Tomlin from his song Our God is Greater:

Our God is greater, our God is stronger,
God you are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome and power
Our God, Our God...

Nothing in this life can take away the fact that our God has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (see 1 Corinthians 15:50-57).  You may feel overwhelmed, you may feel defeated, you may feel outmatched, but our God is bigger, stronger, more powerful than anything that Satan and this world can through at us.

Because the fact of the matter is that Jesus died on a cross and rose from the grave to overcome this world and to defeat Satan. Jesus also died and rose that our sins would be forgiven and that we could have hope in the resurrection to eternal life through faith.  God’s grace encompasses us even though (and because) we are sinners.  God’s love is massive and true.  God’s compassion is abundant.

Satan is strong.  This world is powerful.  But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57)

Embrace this Good News and celebrate, but more importantly worship — Worship our awesome God.

Why?

Because…

Our God is greater, our God is stronger,
God you are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome and power
Our God, Our God...

Praise be to God!
