We went to EdVenture a few days ago in Columbia. It's a neat, interactive place of learning for kids. Everyone in our group had a fun time.
While there, two of my daughters got their picture taken in front of Eddie. He's really quite impressive at 40 feet in height and 35,000 pounds in weight. His heart alone weighs over 500 pounds. Each of his shoes are 12.5 feet in length. His shoulders are 22 feet in width. And his smile measures in at 3.5 feet across.
That's pretty big! And it's a definite attention grabber. Everyone marvels at Eddie when visiting EdVenture.
Here's something even more impressive: God is big. REALLY BIG! Check this out....
In Isaiah 66:1, He tells us "Heaven is my throne, the earth is my footstool." God is so big, He could prop His heels up on our planet if He so desired. Incredible!
In Isaiah 40:12, we learn that He can hold all the waters of our planet "in the measures of His hand", and He can hold "the dust of the earth in a basket." Amazing!
In Isaiah 40:22, we are taught that when God looks at Earth, "it's people are like grasshoppers." Compared to Him, we humans are like tiny bugs. Remarkable!
Friends, God is gigantic. As a matter of fact, it's impossible for us to measure Him. That's why He asked Job this rhetorical question: "Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?" The obvious answer is "No way!" No man can fathom how HUGE God is.
This is just one of many reasons why God is worthy of praise and worship. He stands above everyone and everything else in multiple ways. He is not threatened by anyone or anything. Simply put, He is mighty!
Find comfort today in this truth: God is BIG! Big enough to handle whatever happens. And big enough to take care of you and me.
What a great God we have!!
