Bigger than Our Whole World

That’s one of my new favorite Christmas quotes. It blows my mind that the God who is bigger than creation itself, who spoke that very creation into existence, became as small and helpless as an infant. The God who exists outside of time — who created time — stepped into time and was wrapped snugly in swaddling cloths and laid in a manger where animals fed.

The same God who became small is bigger than anything you or I will ever face. He’s bigger than the people who hurt us or the jobs that stress us out or the tragedy that takes our loved ones away from us. God is big enough and strong enough to hold our whole world together. The very word glory has the connotation of weightiness, as in God is able to keep all the pieces of our lives from flying apart and keep them in orbit. He’s able to get us through the valley of the shadow of death.

He is God, and He’s here to stay.
