Your problems, your challenges, your struggles and this world might look big, but He is much bigger.

If our world is great, and the universe is vastly greater, how big is the One who powerfully created it? The Bible tells us, “For by [Jesus] all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him” (Col. 1:16 nasb).

In these perilous times of struggle, He powerfully offers us His peace. There’s lots of division, angst, and weird beliefs out there, but God can make you sound.

Your relationship-issues and this world might look big, but He is much bigger.

This is good news because this same Jesus who created the universe is the One who has come to rescue us from our sin for every day and forever. The night before He died, Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 nasb).

When facing the large and small challenges of life, we call on the One who made the universe, died and rose again, and won victory over this world’s brokenness. In our times of struggle, He powerfully offers us His peace.

Your circumstances and this world might look big, but He is much bigger.

Lord, I’m grateful that You are here for us. Thanks for being smarter and greater than my mind could ever comprehend. Trials come and trials go, sometimes the people do too. Help me to know and trust You as my best Friend today. Savior, I repent even now -- I turn from my wrong-doin’s that have hurt You. I want You, Jesus, more than all else and I’m ready to submit to Your Lordship.

Come as you are.. right here and now. Jesus loves you. He came, lived (totally sinless), died cuz of His BIG LOVE and came alive again. We choose, but He can save people from their sins -- anyone humble enough to turn and trust Him. See Matthew 1:21. His name is more powerful than anything you might face today.

Your trials and this world might look big, but He is much bigger.
