It’s all about perspective. From down here, these Redwood trees are gargantuan. From a helicopter, they wouldn’t be as impressive.

This shot of Mars is magnificent. From earth, we can’t even see this with the naked eye; we’re blind to this view without the help of the Hubble telescope. Our planet isn’t even in the frame. Our tiny homes and trees aren’t even visible here. Our wars don’t exist inside this frame.

It’s all about perspective.

And God measures the entire universe in the span of His hand (see Isaiah 40:12). He’s greater than we think, and yet He desires to reveal His goodness to us and teach us about truth. It’s amazing.

God has not left His universe without a witness, from the gargantuan (the center of the Whirlpool galaxy)

to the minute-- millions of tiny cells in your body that hold everything together (laminin). Amazing.

“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” (Col. 1:16-17 NKJV)

“who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,” (Heb 1:3 NKJV)
