He Is BIG


  The last 23 hours I can't get passed how BIG God is.  On this one planet that you see from space, what we call home, you don't see my clean house.   You don't even see starving people in Africa, earthquake victims in China, or homeless children in Mexico.  You see what God created with His hand of love, does it awe you?   Every person, good or bad, rich or poor, healthy or sick has lived here and died here.  We are His creation-we are but a breath, but the Word of the Lord stands forever. 
"My Lord and my God, it is You who measured the waters in the hallow of Your hand and with the breadth of Your hand marked off the heavens." Isa. 40:12
"Who is like You, the Lord my God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?" Ps. 113:5-6

My friends, I can't get my arms around this.....His love is mighty and fierce.  Yet, gentle and soothing.  With the breadth of His hands he marked off the heavens-we serve a BIG GOD!  He loves His children with an everlasting love.  Enjoy His creation.  It is a glimpse of what is yet to come.  One way that we see His fingerprints is to look at this, our home, Earth.

Great post, my dear. Indeed, our God is big!

My Pop worked with missionaries in Guatemala and Hondurus for months at a time when I was growing up. He helped the 'brothers' (believers) build churches and roads. When they would run into a snag, or run out of money to buy supplies, their only reply was, "My God is big." And they then sat down and waited...sometimes 2 or 3 days....and sure enough, whatever they needed would come to them. They knew it...never doubted it...just waited for it.

Oh! to be like that!
