Just Breathe…

Jeremiah 32:27 (KJV) Behold, I [am] the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

I’m not sure if I’ve ever shared this revelation or not, but it was very significant in changing my view of God that perhaps I should designate its own post.

In 2012, while my husband was in the Far Country and I was desperately praying for the restoration of our marriage, I had this visual image in my mind of God. I thought God would have to rise up from His throne, take action, and change my husband’s heart. I didn’t think anything was wrong in that thought. Honestly, I didn’t even realize those were my thoughts until God pointed out the truth to me. God showed me that my thoughts of Him were truly small. I thought God would have to “do” something to change my husband.

He corrected me by telling me that all He would have to do is just breathe and all would change.

Whoa.

In the Spirit, I saw this big God who is so big and mighty that no mere man could make him move from His throne. God has to take no action. He wills it, and it comes to be. He thinks it, and it comes to pass. All He had to do was to take a tiny breath, and my husband would succumb to His will, and my marriage would be restored. He would be a changed man forever.

After that day, I was a changed woman forever. I saw how great God was and how small we are. I thought I believed that before, but that day God showed me my true heart. I’m so glad He did.

Without realizing it, we put God in a box with our preconceived ideas or our expectations of Him, when all He truly wants is to reveal His power and might. Don’t make God small. Open your eyes and heart and see how truly BIG our God is.

Jeremiah 32:17 (KJV) Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, [and] there is nothing too hard for thee

Isaiah 29:5 (NIV) But your many enemies will become like fine dust, the ruthless hordes like blown chaff. Suddenly, in an instant…

2 Samuel 22:16 (NLT) Then at the command of the LORD, at the blast of his breath, the bottom of the sea could be seen, and the foundations of the earth were laid bare.
