“How Big is God?”

 
Big God 1024X768
A question we often hear is, “How big is God?” God is big enough to solve any problem, big enough to forgive any sin, big enough to comfort the deepest grief, big enough to walk with you through any valley, big enough to help you realize your greatest dreams, big enough to help you overcome any obstacle or fear in life. The question is not, “How big is God?” The question is, “How big is your faith in Him?”


God is Always Faithful!

Sometimes, even with all our prayers and pleading, the spouse still leaves, the marriage fails, the child becomes a prodigal, the deal falls through, a job is lost, a loved one dies… and we get angry and bitter toward God because He didn’t answer our prayers the way we desired for Him to do. Faith believes even when prayers go unanswered and grows when we put it all in His hands. He’s always faithful and will never fail you. Trust Him!

HOW BRIGHT IS ONE CANDLE?
 
How bright is one candle? How many lumens does one candle produce? I don’t know either, but I have always been impressed with those spotlights that claim to be as bright as 1,000,000 candles. Really, 1 million candles? How did they measure 1 million candles? So how bright is one candle? Or two? Or 72 candles?
