All around us we see it, people struggling, going to incredible trials, tired, beaten up, discouraged and even depressed. I think it's important for us to stop everything, just for a moment and remind ourselves of how great our God really is.
The oceans of the world contain more than 340 quintillion gallons of water yet God holds them in the hollow of his hand Isaiah 40:12.
The earth weight 6 sextillion metric tons yet to God it represents but dust on the scale Isaiah 40:12, 15.
The known universe stretches more than 30billion light years (200 sextillion miles) yet to God that great expanse represents but a span, hands width. Isaiah 40:12.
That same universe contains at least 100 billion stars yet God knows them all my name. Isaiah 40:26.
God is so huge, beyond what we can possible picture in our minds and yet, we find ourselves in trouble and we try to offer him advice on how to fix things for us. I submit to you that God is in control and can handle everything and he does, in his own time.
Isaiah 40:31 They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary they shall walk and not faint.
Take the time today to remember who you are to God and how big he is. Remember how awesome he is. Remember that he loves you and he sent his only son to die on the cross for your sins and that he is faithful to finish the good work he has begun in you. Trust him with all your heart, keep your eyes on him and be patient and he will deliver you. God bless.
