More Than We Think He Is

Posted on: 7-15-112016

Many of us tend to see God as a judge who sits on His throne, gavel in hand, just waiting to slam it down and declare us guilty.  We fail to see Him as the God who desperately wants to be a part of our lives and show us how much He loves us because we can only imagine Him as a God who keeps a record of our wrongs so He can bring condemnation to us.  We can fathom a holy God  seeking people who are “good” but we can’t fathom a holy God wanting anything to do with those of us who have gotten it wrong more than we’ve gotten it right.  We cannot comprehend that the God of all heaven and earth would stoop low enough to meet us where we are – even if that means in a jail cell, a hospital bed, a bar room, a gutter, or maybe even a stable  – He will go wherever necessary to show us His love!  The following song reminds us that none of us know exactly who God is and that He is so much more than we think He is!

“More Than You Think I Am” By Danny Gokey

You always think I’m somewhere on a mountain top
But never think behind bars
You’d be amazed the places that I’d go to be with you
Where you are

So forget what you’ve heard
What you think that you know
There’s a lot about me
That’s never been told

(Chorus) I’m more than you dreamed
More than you understand
Your days and your times
Were destined for our dance
I catch all your tears
Burn your name on my heart
Be still and trust my plan
I’m more than you think I am
More than you think I am

Rumor has it there’s a gavel in my hand
I’m only here to condemn
But let me tell you secrets you would’ve never known
I think of you as my best friend

So much has been said
Even doubted my name
But I’m showing you now
Who I really am

(Chorus)

Let me open your eyes to see the heart of me, differently
Come closer than you’ve ever been
Let me in like never before
Bring me every broken part
The wounds and scars of who you are
And hide in me and you will see

(Chorus)
