If I were to ask you, “Is the Lord Great?” I am sure your first response would be “Yes!” I might bet that you would be able to start listing all the reasons why He is great too. Because we know that He is!
But, what if I asked you, “What is the number one thing you think or talk about in a day?” What would you say?
I have to be honest, the number one thing I talk about in a day isn’t God. Matthew 15:18 says “But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man.”
Women are communicators. We naturally speak about the things that are on our hearts but we can choose what lens we speak through. Life can be hard and bad things can happen. When we are going through those times they tend to consume our thoughts, and what consumes our thoughts comes out of our mouths.
Is it evident that you know the Lord is great even in those times? God is always seated on His throne and worthy to be praised. But sometimes we pick Him up and put him on a little shelf in the bookcase while the situation takes the great throne.
What and how we communicate is a great telltale sign of where God is in our circumstances.
“For I KNOW that the Lord is great and that our Lord is above all my circumstances.” (Italics mine.)
