How Big is Your God?

I apparently wrote this sometime last year but am just now posting this (I went back and double checked)

So many times I limit God to my own personal experiences without really looking around to the experiences of others.  When I do that I limit the "bigness" of God.  I am pigeon-holing him into only my little world.  In reading My Utmost for His Highest for April 9 (remember this was written in 2008) I read the following and it's talking about seeing Jesus: "Jesus must appear to you and your friend individually, no one can see Jesus with your eyes.  And division takes place when one has seen Him and the other has not..."

Then in Luke 10:23 I read these words of Jesus- "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see."  I want my friends to see what I see but at the same time I cannot force them to do so.  Only God can bring about that type of vision.  My part comes by sharing what I have seen.
