Reminding Me...

My God is a BIG God.

He is the God that created the world.
He is the God that parted the Red Sea.
He is the God that moves mountains.

I love the big things that God does for us, through us, and around us.

But lately I am so moved by the small things that God does.

The way He knows us intimately. He knows our struggles, our weaknesses, our strengths, the number of hairs on our heads. He knows our fears and what brings us great joy.

I love that He knows exactly what we need when we need it. I love that He took the time to write His story for us and that He made sure there where characters that we could relate to and learn from.

Today I find myself relating to Joshua. As I was reading the first chapter of Joshua I was struck by the fact that God reminds Joshua at least 4 times to be strong and courageous. Maybe God put that in there just for me or maybe, just maybe Joshua was a lot like me. Wanting to do the Lord's will, wanting to do what God called him to do but still struggling with fear. And God in His great mercy and grace, knowing Joshua's weakness stepped in and reminded Joshua time and time again not to fear!

Oh how He loves us!

What is He reminding you of lately?

One of my favorite verses..."Have I not commanded you be strong and courageous, do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9!
