have faith in a mighty big god
Mark 9:17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; 18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not. 19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
A man in need of a miracle for his son came to Jesus’ disciples for a deliverance but because of their unbelief they were limited in what they could do. When the disciples could not get results Jesus said part of the problem was not only their unbelief but also the age, times, and faithless generation. Their environment and culture was filled with unbelief, disbelief, and without faith. What was in their world got into them. Our environment is full of limitation and the language of limitation. “Cannot,” “Will not,” “Impossible,” “Who cares,” “It is not worth it,” “I tried,” “It is not fair,” “This is stupid,” “I am too old (poor, young, uneducated),” “This is good enough,” is all the language of limitation.
What is a limit or limitation? It is something that limits by prescribing a point in time, space or extent beyond which it is impossible or forbidden to go. It is a point, line, or edge where something ends or must end. It is something that limits as some factor in a person’s makeup which restricts the scope of his activity or accomplishment. It means something is confined within bounds a restraint or enclosing limits. We may feel limited but our faith is in an unlimited God. We don’t always have to feel big within ourselves but we have a covenant with God our faith is in a Big God.

Our God is an awesome God and mighty Big God. Isaiah 40:12 says, “Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, and meted out Heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance.” This mighty Big God has remained committed to lifting His people out of the limits of their own ways and into the limitlessness of His great ability. His main way to do that is through covenant. A covenant generally joins two parties together and brings the strengths of one party into the weaknesses of the other. In fact, one reason for making a covenant is the weaker is supported by the stronger. He joins Himself with His people through covenant and through that covenant His Bigness is brought into our lives. “My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips,” Psalm 89:34. Have faith in God, He’s a Mighty Big God.
