The universe is quite an incredible place. Just contemplating the immensity of the number of stars is mind boggling. If every person were to count different stars, each person would have to count over 50 billion stars without counting the same star twice. If you were to pour a small amount of salt into your hand and then look at one grain of salt, each grain has many, many atoms inside it. Everything is made up of tiny, tiny atoms, including us. A snowflake is created from a water droplet forming around a minute dust particle which then freezes. Amazingly each is unique from the other, yet all have six sides. What incredible beauty and detail each individual snowflake exhibits.
All around us creation says “Look at how I was created, look at the infinite wisdom and insight with which I was formed. Look at the sunrise and the sunset, the ebb and flow of the tides, the rhythm of the seasons, the beauty of a newborn baby or the greatness of the heavens above on a cloudless night” “Look and see”, creation cries out there is a God, a creator, of infinite love and limitless power.
God says that He knows the number of stars and calls each of them by name. (Psalm 147:4) That He knows every hair upon our heads or the lack of, whatever the case may be. He know when we sit and when we rise. He knows our thoughts before we speak them, and the hidden things in our hearts. He sees and knows everything, and in the midst of all of this greatness, and majesty He loves us.(Psalm 147:4; Matthew 10:30)
“You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar.You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.…” (Psalm 139:2)
If He knows us and loves us that much, should that not cause us to trust Him? To trust in His strength and His goodness. Trust in His plan and purposes for our lives. Trust that He has it all covered. When we meditate on the greatness of God we soon realise that He is more than capable of handling our every need and prayer.
Today take some time to think, to meditate on, just how powerful, creative, and unlimited God is. There are no limits or boundaries He cannot cross or override. There are no limits to His love. It is unfailing and faultless. There are some things that may cause us to go wow in life, but perhaps the greatest is the reality that we are loved by the one who created it all, and that He did it all for us.
Prayer: Lord I’m going to take some time to think about all you have done and acknowledge your greatness. To take the time to say Wow, and thank you. In Jesus name Amen.
