The Finger of God (1)

The Finger of God (1)

Take a sec to think about how big the place you live in is. Then, consider that a whole bunch of those villages, towns, and cities make up your region. And how many regions are there in the Philippines. And how many countries on the face of the earth?

Okay, now zoom out.

Our earth is floating amongst a whole lot of stars, and other planets. And that’s just the Milky Way, one of many galaxies. Bottom line: each one of us is a very small part of a very large universe.

Now, this isn’t us trying to send you into some sort of existential crisis. In fact, it’s the opposite. Think of all of that as context to this:

God. Knows. You.

Yes, we might feel absolutely tiny we are in the context of this huge, huge universe, but God still sees us. And He loves what He sees.

Romans 1:20 suggests that one of the reasons that God made the universe so, well, flipping impressive is for us. It says “…since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made…”.

Everything that God has made, from the complexities of the human body, to the immeasurable expanse of space, is one of the ways that He shows Himself to us. In Psalm 8, David talks about how he can see God’s glory in the world around him. Go read it.

What Now?

Schedule in some time to be outside today. Whether it’s for the sunset, under the stars, or simply a lunchtime walk in a park – spend the time praying, and looking for glimpses of God in His creation.

‘When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers…’ Psalms 8 NKJ
