Veggie Tales - God is Bigger than the Boogie Man Theme Song

Veggie Tales - God is Bigger than the Boogie Man Theme Song

If we really believe that God is Bigger than the Boogie Man, why do we not take all our concerns to him. Why do we do the little prayers of "Help me get through the day" and not pray for each individual concern we have. Why do we not talk to God as we talk to our friends? Telling him all that is wrong, all that hurts us?
Do we fall into the lie that our concerns are not important, that God does not care? Do we feel that we are not good enough for God to hear and answer our prayers?

This past week I took the challenge to write down five things that I want or need in our family and to pray aloud for them, believing that God would grant them to me as every father wants to grant the wishes of their child. One of them was answered on the 3rd day of prayer. God hears us and sometimes he says no, sometimes he says wait and other times he grants it the week we pray.

So if God is bigger than our biggest fears, he can handle the little stuff too.

  1. Well said... sometimes I think He just knows and there's no need to ask. Sometimes I can't come up with the right words and it just unravels out of my mouth; out of control. Maybe God really does want to hear me repeat, day in and day out, instead of just once (a week, a month)??

    Good idea!!
