Can you tell how I spent my time this morning? (no, I'm not bragging...)

I am reading Breaking Free by Beth Moore as part of my devotions. Still. I've seriously been reading this book for about a year. It's taking me forever. And, yes, I know this is my own fault. I haven't been very diligent in doing my devotions. I've been doing quite poorly, actually. It's not something I'm proud of, but I do like to be honest. While I'm sure no one thinks my life is amazing and I do know that I'm not all everyone thinks about, I don't want to lie. It's not even worth it - I know it's something so many people struggle with. But anyway, that's not what I'm here to talk about.

It seems like everything I've read lately has been talking about God's power, His greatness, and how He is in control. Think God is trying to tell me something? I think so, I know so. Here's what I read this morning that brought me to tears (I'm not ashamed of that - ha):

Isaiah 46:3-7
"...I've been carrying you on My back from the day you were born,
And I'll keep on carrying you when you're old.
I'll be there, bearing you when you're old and gray.
I've done it and will keep on doing it, carrying you on my back, saving you."
So to whom will you compare Me, the Incomparable?
Can you picture Me without reducing Me?"
How often do I find myself doing this? God is bigger than me. I clearly don't humble myself to Him enough. I put myself on the same level as Him all the time. Why? I can't do that! I am not God. None of us are. My own selfishness and my own thoughts are what cause me to do this. I don't picture God as big. I ignore who He is and what He has done in my life.
So, my question is: Do you do this as well? How often do all of us reduce God and think of Him as less than He is?

    Every day ... I have to remind myself of His BIGNESS... every once in awhile He blows me away with a glimpse of Himself and I end up on my face. I love that verse from Isaiah- we are in a battle to SEE God. Did you read When I Don't Desire God? There is a battle plan to see Him in all His beauty and bigness. Also, RC Sproul's The Holiness of God- that book changed how I viewed Him too- need a refresher! Thanks for the reminder!
