There's an old song that says, "Thereis power, power, wonder working power in the blood of the Lamb." People around the world sing this song yet have never tapped into that power for themselves. We have made God into a weak, incapable grandpa in the sky that maybe could help us out if we are really good boys and girls. We hardly ever pray for miracles, and when we do, we rarely ever believe they are going to happen. Some people say, "Well, God doesn't work that way anymore." What???? Are you seriously telling me that the God who created galaxies and planets that we will never even know about can't fix your little situation because He doesn't work like that anymore?!?! That is ludacris. This is the God who sends fire from heaven to prove that He is the one true God. This is the God who splits the sea to rescue His people. This is the God who sent His son to die, then busted Him out of the grave so we could live. We forget that God is powerful. We forget when we have needs that He is capable. We forget because we treat God like He is one of us.
We we have to remember that God is not one of us. Sorry, Joan Osborne. We cannot afford to bring Him down to our level. We have to keep Him on the throne where He belongs, not on a lazy boy recliner. Think about what our church services would actually look like if we believed in the real God. Think about how it could change your work or your school or your family. Jesus came to bring Heaven to earth, but we are trying to turn Heaven into earth. We have to change our mindsets if we ever want to see change in this world. We have to make God bigger than we can even imagine, because the truth is, He's even bigger than that.
