Our Great God is for Us

I love leading worship for the elementary kids on Sunday mornings! It is such a blessing watching these kids worship, and hearing them sing at the top of their lungs! We sing a song, Our God is Greater, and it is my prayer that each one of them would know that the God who is for them, is greater than all things!

It occurred to me today, as we were singing this, and another song, that I serve a living God! Not a God made by human hands or poured from precious metals. I serve the God who created all these things, He is greater than all things in the earth, and He is greater than the whole earth!

How could He be great if he were part of this world, that is why He is above this all else! He is above all gods!

It also stands to reason that only a great God would require absolute faith in Him alone, and only a great God would save us according to His will. If I believe that my works save me or keep me safe then how can I believe that my God is greater?

Isaiah 40 is a great example of this! Verses 18-22 With whom, then, will you compare God? To what image will you liken him? As for an idol, a metalworker casts it, and a goldsmith overlays it with gold and fashions silver chains for it. A person too poor to present such an offering selects wood that will not rot; they look for a skilled worker to set up an idol that will not topple.
Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded? He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

Our God is greater
Our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is healer
Awesome in power
Our God, Our God

And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us,
And if our God is with us, then what can stand against?
