Have you ever heard the song by Ruth Harms Calkin? “My God is so big, so strong and so mighty. There’s nothing my God cannot do for you.”

This song is based on Psalm 104, which depicts Creation, praise, and glory that are owed to Him for all his wisdom and greatness in all creation working together.

As a mom, I want my kids to know that their God is so big. There isn’t anything in life He can’t handle and can’t fix. If I were to die tomorrow, this is probably one of the biggest takeaways I’d want to give my kids.

No matter what, God is God.

If I only believed my God is so big with all my heart

Isn’t it funny that what I want my kids to grasp is also something I want to stake claim to? How often do I think I need to figure out what I should do or worry my way through a problem?

What if a situation is too big for Him? Isn’t that what Satan wants us to believe. Somehow God isn’t who He says He is? Is He really keeping the best from us?

Honestly, we still fall for the same lies Satan used on Adam and Eve.

If I believed with all my heart that God is so big, most of my frustration and despair would be eliminated. I wouldn’t get torn up when little annoyances happened throughout my day. Friend’s words wouldn’t have such an impact.

So while I want my kids to embrace this truth, working through examples and supporting evidence of the truth is a great reminder to me.

The Bible Declares My God is so Big

Throughout the pages of the Bible, we see God coming to the rescue of those He loves and either changing their situation or their perspective to allow them to overcome.

Joseph was sold into slavery, bought by Potiphar, and put in charge of his household, put into jail, and then he became the second in command to the throne of Egypt.

Moses was laid in the basket of reeds and floated down the river and ended up becoming a part of Pharaoh’s family.

Rahab was a prostitute that helped the Israelites overcome Jericho and became a family member to Jesus in His genealogy.

Peter disowned Jesus three times and yet Jesus told Peter He would build the church on Him.

Paul attacked the early church and even killed many members and became one of the biggest evangelists of the early church.

God can take hopeless situations and turn them around. He can take ordinary people and make them great.

God can make a way when our human eyes can’t even see a way through.

Living out My God is so Big

What I’ve learned is living a life based on this truth takes intention. It hears the lies, but refuses them and turns them over to God– replacing lies with the truth again and again.

It’s choosing God no matter what because God is God. Satan isn’t God, and his lies are not the truth.

In order to become stealth against Satan’s lies and to keep God as big in our minds, we need to learn all the truth we can so we can fight against Satan’s schemes. Providing our kids with age-appropriate resources and then spending time with them with the resources is a sure way for the Word to grow more in their hearts.

  1. Replacing truth with lies – that’s a big one! It’s so hard to realize and admit how often we believe lies. But it makes me wonder how much of God we would see if we opened our eyes to how big He truly is!

  2. “You can get angry with God when seasons are hard, He’s big enough to take your honest feelings.” This is what we have studied this year in the women’s ministry through the book of Job. God can handle more honesty than most people can, and He doesn’t get offended by honesty.

  3. All the feels from singing My God is So Big came rushing back. I’m thankful for my BIG GOD and there is nothing He can’t do. I loved your point “God’s love and grace are bigger than the ocean.” Reminds me that never try to limit anything with God because He is truly limitless with endless possibilities.

  5. Living our lives for the Lord in front of our children is so crucial…and choosing Him even when life gets hard…and intentionally teaching them, I love that you used that word intentional. Being intentional about so much with our kids is important, but being intentional about teaching them about Christ is the most important!!

  6. There is so much truth here but I want to point out one that was so memorable for me as a child: God forgets your sins after he forgives them. I clung to that as a child and still cling to it as an adult!
