Our God is Greater


Chris Tomlin’s “Our God (is Greater)” is one of my favorite worship songs:

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God You are higher than any other.
Our God is Healer, awesome and power, Our God, Our God.

This morning, in a fallow moment in traffic, I started humming that tune.  My mind was dotted with prayers for loved ones, as well as burdens of my own.

Then the two meshed—the troubles, and the tune.  Wow.  It occurred to me—– “Our God is Greater” is the (eventual) answer to any question in life!

See what I mean?

Q:  Who does he think he is, talking to me like that?

Q:  Should I let him get away with it? 
A:  Our God is Greater.

A:  That’s for them to decide, I suppose. 
Q:  What if they get hurt?

A:  Whenever you let it.
Q:  But everything’s going wrong! 
A:  Our God is Greater.

Q:  How am I supposed to change after all these years? 
A:  You gotta have a want to. 
Q:  Seriously, I can’t believe it’s possible. 
A:  _____  _____  ___  _________.

And if Our God is for us, then who could ever stop us?
And if our God is with us, then what can stand against?
