Yesterday I was sitting in church during worship and we were singing “God of this city” and I started to think about the lyrics. It says:

Greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this city
 
The words “greater things” kept running through this small mind and thought about what greater things were. We often think of great things as awe inspiring, grand, the whole world can see, headline news kind of things. But that’s man’s limited view of “great” things.
 
I looked around at the people singing along and saw great amazing things that can’t be seen with the naked eye. Marriages that are together for decades. Generations of families sitting together. Wayward children just there in church. Friendships that will last a lifetime. Children born and yet to be born. And so much more. 
 
All these things are great…. some of them even greater still. 
 
Great things don’t have to be visible. They may not even draw any attention. But in God’s eyes the littlest things in our eyes are magnificent in His.
 
Don’t  go looking for the grand when you want the greater things.  You may miss the greater things yet to come.
