“Too Big For You” by Kirk Hunt
And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee. And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.
1 Kings 19:7-8 KJV
God has plans for you. Surprising, extraordinary designs to benefit others through your life. Since God is a big God, His plans for you are large and out-sized.
God’s great and glorious plans are, in fact, too big for you. In a single day, the nation of Israel had returned to the true worship of God at Mt. Carmel. In the days following the “juniper tree incident,” Elijah would appoint kings and shape the future of Israel and other nations.
All of it, even for a prophet of Elijah’s stature, too much for a single man. Elijah needed the supernatural sustenance and support of God, to do the work of God. Faithfully, God provided just what Elijah needed to continue in his appointed tasks.
God’s plans are too big for you. With the plans, He has also provided the strength you need to see them through. Wake up and take in the strength that God has provided for you. You have a great journey ahead.
Think: God is my source and supply in every task.
Pray: “Lord, I choose to trust Your plans and provision.”
