I am a deep thinker or maybe even a ponderer of things not usually thought of. I don’t require much, just the palette that the Lord gave me – His Holy Word.
How big is God?
God made everything…EVERYTHING. Scientists, philosophers and figure-heads have tried since the beginning of time to build a case against God being the Creator of Life and the universe. What a daunting task trying to unseat God!
Can a person assume to understand God’s completeness? Would a mere human understand that the Greatest Story ever told needed a beginning and end, not just the juicy middle that everyone only conveniently remembers? If you cannot grasp the beginning and end, then you cannot assume to understand the vastness of God and LIFE.
In the ‘known’ universe, there are thus far 70 sextillion stars…that’s 21 zeros after 70. The most current estimates guess that there are 100 to 200 billion galaxies in the Universe; it’s been estimated that about 10% of stars have planets which would mean about 20 billion solar systems in our galaxy alone.
This is where men like Stephen Hawking comes along; trying to unseat God by giving us the ‘Big Bang’ THEORY….everything is here by some kind of extraordinary accident. What God has created with His immeasurable love has been deemed an accident.
We are by no means AN ACCIDENT. God cannot make accidents otherwise He would not be perfect. While we ponder Life and its beginning, middle and end, there is Jesus who God gave us to show us our imperfections, that were are teachable, and that we are eternal with Him if we choose to be.
Truly, Life is quite simple. We have the vastness of the universe to show us how important we are to God to have something so incredible. And, we have Jesus, who God gave us to prove His compassion, not His dispassion:
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
