How big is your God?
My mind goes in strange circles sometimes and lately I have been fixated on trying to understand God the Creator. I understand God the Father. That isn’t the problem. The problem is understanding my relationship with God the Creator.
Have you ever thought about how big God is? Our solar system is so large we can barely see it all, and there is projected to be thousands, millions more just like it. The universe is said to be infinite. God created all of this, so I believe He has His eye on all of it.
Sometimes, when sitting in worship at church, I envision God hovering overhead with His arms spread protectively over us. Can you even imagine the size of God to put his arms protectively over infinite space? And that’s the problem. I can see God protecting all infinity, and when I do, that leaves me less than a speck on a speck of a planet. Less than a virus. I am humbled, and how do I approach the throne of one so mighty and powerful? I feel insignificant in the grand scheme of things.
The apostles asked Jesus to tell them about God, and His answer gives me peace. “If you know me, you know the Father.” I know Jesus. He is my savior. He lived on earth; He understands my trials; He is there for me.
After weeks of frustrating analysis, I have come to the conclusion that I don’t have to understand more than God the Father. My finite brain cannot comprehend eternity or infinity. I can’t comprehend why God would choose to create humans.
When all of everything is His, why does He still care? My finite brain is pulling me down! It is enough for me to know that He did care, He does care, and He always will. He is Father. He is Jesus. He is Spirit. That’s enough to get me through this life.
Any thoughts keep rumbling through your head? Give me a shout and I will mull them over with you.
Have a blessed week,
