"The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork." Psalms 19:1

When was the last time you took a moment and wondered at all the creation around you. It is really easy to get micro focused in our busy lives and just go about our day to day without ever taking time to think and contemplate the world around us. We live here, we’ve never left here, and we can easily take it for granted. But if you stop and allow yourself the time to take in all that is around you it is really easy to be struck by just how big and complicated it all is. How seamlessly it works together, and therefore just how big God must be.

I’ve always been struck by how everything has to work so perfectly with each other for various animals and ecosystems to exist. They really are delicate but yet they perfectly exist, at least until we come in and think we can manage it better. The more I study the relationships between the various elements in nature the more I am convinced that there is a God that has organized everything and set it in motion. But more so than just His existence, I am reminded of how small I am and how big He is.

In our own world our problems seem to be the biggest and how could anything else matter compared to what I am going through. But our place in creation should remind us that we are but a small piece and compared to God our problems, our worries, our trials, are nothing. And yet God does care about them, and us, specifically. How amazing that such a huge God, so big that if we really try to think about it we still cannot comprehend, cares so much about us, about our hopes and fears. He loves us so much that He suffered on the cross to rescue us from ourselves, from our sin.

So think about that today, you are really small, and insignificant, but God still loves you, the God who made all this, and even stuff you cannot see. He loves you. How amazing is that!
