Obviously, when we talk about God there is this ethereal understanding that he is GOD, that he is the Creator of all the universe, and that he is this mystical gigantic being.
For me, I don’t have a lot of insight into that and I can’t fully register the measure of what that means because I haven’t really traveled throughout the universe.
However, what I can understand is how big God is in my life.
When I have felt incomplete, God has completed me.
When I have felt hopeless, God has made a way for me.
When I have seen the gruesome and ugliness of evil, God showed me beauty.
God is huge in my life.
God is in every cell of my body, in my soul, in my spirit, in every part of the air around me, in the nature I’m surrounded by, and in the people that I come across.
And it blows my mind when I think of God in a mathematical way, because if God is that big in my life…and is big in three of my friends lives… how big does that make him all together?
And if he is that big in my group’s lives… how big does it make him in the lives of all the people in my community….
If God is that big in my community, how big is he in all the lives of the people in the USA who see him move in and around them everyday?!!
And if he is that big in my country, how big is he when you add up every single person around the globe who witness the presence move through their lives and the lives around them?
Woah woah woah…thats a huge God already!
Not even all the Presidents of all the nations combined are that impactful!!!
But the bible says he is even bigger than that!
God is as big as the milky way???!!
Well, that’s crazy! But the bible didn’t say, “God is as big as the milky way.”
The Bible says that God is the King and creator of all the Universe.
Matthew 17 1-9 After six days Jesus took with Him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.
4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is My Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased. Listen to Him!”
6 When the disciples heard this, they fell face down to the ground, terrified. 7 But Jesus came and touched them. He said, “Get up. Don’t be afraid.” 8 When they looked up they saw no one except Jesus.
9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus instructed them, “Do not tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.”
Woah….and this God….whose full manifestation is that of cosmic light…..made all of us, in his image….. this God made me?
In my mother’s womb, God wove me with all my attributes & family inheritance…And this God that names himself LOVE, loves me? And he knows me? And he makes all things work together for my good?…Maybe I can fathom it a bit more…the size of our Creator… and how small my circumstances may seem….and how large my purpose really may be…
This is beginning to make sense to me.
How small doubt is…
And how small fear is…
The God, that made everything, is rooting for me & championing me…
Yes and Amen.
