How Big Is Your God?

I've been reading a fantastic book of late called 'In a pit with a lion on a snowy day' written by Ps Mark Batterson of NCC Church. Here is a taster from the book that really fits in with our Inspire conference theme of Imagine. So here goes:

"Isa 55:9 ESV
(9) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Astronomers have spied galaxies 12.3 billion light years from earth. To put that distance into perspective, consider the fact that light traveling 186 000 miles per second only takes 8 minutes to travel the 93 million miles between the sun and planet earth. Sunlight is only 8 minutes old. But light from the fartherest galaxy takes 12.3 billion years to get here. That distance is virtually incomprehensible! And God says that is about the distance between His thoughts and our thoughts. Your best thought about God on your best day falls 12.3 billion light-years short of how great and how good God really is. ... Maybe its time to stop putting God in a box the size of your cerebral cortex. Maybe its time to stop creating God in your image and let Him create you in His."

So its been nearly a month after the Inspire conference. Have you gone back and reviewed some of the challenges you felt that God laid on your heart. What were those limited thoughts that God wanted to bust open? What dreams did God want you to begin dreaming and to begin taking action steps on?

I trust this has been a great encouragment to you.

Godspeed & Kaizan
