Think About It

How Big Is Your God?
by Pastor B.J. Knefley

How big your God is will depend upon your box. The smaller the box is, the smaller your God will be and visa versa.

Jesus made the statement that if you had the faith of a mustard seed you could move mountains, (Matthew 17:20). Do you know anyone with this kind of faith? Do you think that a person with that kind of faith had God in a small or large box or even no box at all? Whatever the size of your box you limit God by the type of box that you keep him in. To have no box means that you have an unlimited God.

Paul wrote to the Ephesians and said, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think” (Eph 3:19-20). Did you notice Paul said that God is able to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Infinitely means that it can’t be measured and it will exceed any known value that we could put upon it. That means that God is infinitely larger that our finite minds can comprehend.

So if your God is small or you have him in a small box, how would you change that? Is there anything that you can do to make God bigger? Before we start, let me say that the problem isn’t with God it’s with us. We limit him and keep him small. We create the perimeters when we keep him in a box no matter what the size.

Perhaps the greatest problem to trusting God and hence the box that we keep him in is that we’ve never gotten to know him. We’ve equated our relationship with him to a set of dos. Before we’re to do we’re to follow, that’s what he called Phillip to do in John 1:43, “Come, follow me”. As you come to know the one that you’re following your understanding starts to grow, hence your box becomes bigger until suddenly they’ve broken out of the box. So the first step in enlarging God starts with just learning how to follow. You’ll be surprised at what you’ll learn. Think about it.
