When I think of BIG, I think of Giant Sequoias.
But, I was reminded this morning during my devotionals
that “BIG” is definitely a relative term.
“Now to Him who is able to do
exceedingly abundantly above all
that we ask or think,
according to the power that works in us…”
“If for some reason it was your job
to design the universe,
how big would you make it?”
That was a question
David Jeremiah asked
in his commentary this month
in Ever Faithful –
a 365 day devotional.
He went on to describe
the universe God created.
The dimensions astounded me!
“The distance from planet Earth
to the observable ‘edge’ of the universe
is 46 billion light-years,
and one light-year
is about 6 trillion miles.”
Six trillion times 46 billion?
God doesn’t think small!
If His creation is BIG,
that means our Creator is BIGGER.
If you have a need today
that seems bigger than
anyone’s ability to handle,
remember what God did
when creating the universe.
God is bigger than all our needs –
Bigger than anything we could ask or think.
I have been away from writing blogs
for over a week now…
Unusual for me.
But I have been constructively busy.
I agreed to accept a nomination
to be an elder on our church’s Session.
So, my problem has been 4 study books
and a workbook that needed my attention.
Then I managed to get a nasty cold,
and the aches and runny nose
and coughing kept me awake at night.
Hard to get motivated to write
an inspirational blog
about love, joy, peace, faith & unity
when you’re facing all that.
Good news is that I am better –
and I am ready to face
my “Bigger God” –
and ask Him for help.
Of course, He delivered!
I have enjoyed catching up
on some of the blogs
you have been posting in my absence.
Thank you for your inspiration!
Here’s another version of that delightful song:
Pray for health and healing, will you?
My God is big enough … bigger than you can imagine!
See ya tomorrow (I hope)…
