Big God, Little Me

This is my notes from this morning's service. I hope you can understand them. Church was great this morning! 

Romans 11:26-36
Isaiah 40:12-14
Sometimes we're guilty of shrinking God. (We can't bring God down to our human understanding. His ways are way above our own and way beyond our understanding.)
John 3:30-36 - Verse 30 really stood out to me!

Walking with God requires - 

1. Humility and Gratitude 

2. Agreeing with God - Amos 3:3

3. Time and Effort (discipline)

4. Right Motives and Right Ambitions
     What gets in the way to make a Christian become a prodigal and backslidden? Self. The Prodigal instead of working and waiting for his heavenly reward wanted his reward now.
What am I allowing to influence me?
Godly, right songs? 

Don't usurp God's position in your life.

Usurp - take (a position of power or importance) illegally or by force

Give up the throne of my life. 
Abdicate - renounce one's throne

Who's on the throne of your life?
Knowing God is in charge removes fear and panic. He is perfect, we are imperfect. He is strong, we are weak. He is in control, I am full of world, fear, and deceit. God can give me the real interpretation what the world really is.  
God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent.
