The God of this City?

There is no one like our God
There is no one like our God

For greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this City
Greater thing have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this City
~ “God of This City” by Chris Tomlin

We sing these words, we raise our hands, and we close our eyes. And it’s a great song.

But do we believe it?

Do we really believe that He is the God of this city? Do we really think that greater things have yet to come & will still be done?

I wonder because so many of us don’t ever live like we believe it. We sing the words, raise the hands, close the eyes, but what do we really do about it?

Singing a song like that and then not doing anything to place yourself for God to use you is like asking God to move you five feet to the right but sitting down and waiting for Him to do it. If you want God to move you, you need to be standing, and putting one foot in front of the other.

Now, that is a crude example, but do you get my point? It’s not that God can’t move you five feet while you are sitting, but rather, that He won’t. Because if you aren’t putting yourself in a position to be changed/moved, then you probably don’t really want to change, and ever the gentleman, God won’t force you.

Pastor Merrill said “God is a shepherd, not a cattle driver, he leads the sheep who follow, but he won’t drive us like cattle, forcing us where we don’t want to go”.

So if you ask God to lead you somewhere, be ready for him to do so, but you also have to move with him in it.

Do you really believe that He is the God of this city? Do you really believe that greater things have yet to come and will be done? Then what are you doing to do about it?

“Be the change you want to see in the world”
