God is Bigger than our Wildest Dreams

Do you ever gaze at the sky looking for God? 
Do you ever wonder just how big He is? 

The Whirlpool Galaxy, 31 million light years away from earth, contains 300 billion stars. 

"When I consider your heavens, 
the work of your fingers, 
the moon and the stars, 
which you have set in place 
what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?" 
Psalm 8:3,4

God is bigger than we could ever possibly imagine.  His creation AND creativity is more than we can fathom.  And yet He hears my every thought, my every prayer, my every word....and He cares for me, for you.

The Hubble telescope captured the black hole in the center of the Whirlpool Galaxy.    What do you see?

I think it looks something like this..................



"He who appoints the sun to shine by day, 
who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, 
who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar-- 
the LORD Almighty is his name."
Jeremiah 31:35

"For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rules or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together."
Colossians 1:16-17

His creation is not haphazard nor accidental.  Scripture shows His power through just His breath and thought.

"By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, 
their starry host by the breath of his mouth."
Psalm 33:6

Does this power not just blow your mind?  He spoke EVERYTHING into existence, created from NOTHING...except one and I.  Genesis 2:7 states "God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being."   and verse 21, "he took one of the man's ribs and close up the place with flesh.  Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man."

Beloved, you were created by the very hand of God, touched by His hand.  The same God who made the universe as pictured above made you.  He is HUGE, yet he knows everything about you.  He is BEYOND our imagination, yet He longs to have a relationship with each of us!

The next time you admire the moon, the stars or a constellation, join them in praising your God in heaven.
"Praise him, 
sun and moon, 
praise him, 
all you shining stars". 
Psalm 148:3

This reminded me of an awesome presentation I saw Louis Giglio make at a Matt Redman and Chris Tomlin concert once. Isn't God's creativity and love of beauty incredible? Love it!!!

Great post! It reminds me of when I was a child and used to try to picture forever. It was mind-boggling. Trying to comprehend God is the same. We can only praise Him.
