God Be Greater, Stronger & Louder
“God Be Greater, Stronger & Louder”
By Zach Wood
Psalm 18:30-32 NIV
As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.
One of my favorite Christian bands is We Are Messengers and they have a song called “Magnify”. I have come to really enjoy this song and appreciate the lyrics. I want to share part of those lyrics with you.
“God be greater than the worries in my life, be stronger than the weakness in my mind, be louder let Your glory come alive, be magnified.”
I have thought about these words in this song the past couple of weeks and they’ve made a huge impact on how I feel each day. I want to share this devotion as a prayer through each of these lines I’ve shared with you.
God, be greater than the worries in my life:
Father, I ask that You and You alone with greater than all the worries I have in my life. God, You know me better than anyone in the world and You know how I’m so consumed with the worries of life and I need to not be. I worry about things going on, things not yet to be and if I will continue to be the servant, husband and father You have created me to be. God, be greater than any worry in my life and help me to not worry, but let Your way be perfect and reflected in my life. I pray that Your flawless Word would be evident in the way I live my daily life. Help others to see that You alone are my strength and Whom I take refuge in.
God, be stronger than the weakness in my mind:
Lord, my mind is so weak so often. I allow negative thoughts to invade my mind and sin creeps in to take over. God, help me to be stronger in my mind and allow Your Word to take control and push those negative thoughts out. Lord, I am weak, but You are strong. I pray that Your mighty power would invade my mind and take over crushing the weakness in my mind to remind me that I am strong through You.
God, be louder let your glory come alive, be magnified:
God, I want Your voice to be louder than any other voices trying to get my attention. There are so many things trying get my attention in the world every day around me. It’s hard to know what to listen to and what to avoid. Father, I need Your voice louder than all of those so that I can follow and obey and magnify Your Name. So many days Lord I try to follow all other voices and do my own thing. God, forgive me when I ignore Your voice and become distracted from what You want me to do.
