Our lives are so filled with the mundane – the people around us, our homes, our jobs, our hobbies – that we often don’t give much thought to what’s beyond our little world, let alone all the details of our town, our country, our planet.
So take a minute to think about these facts:
We can’t properly process this information. It is just too awesome. If we start talking in figures bigger than we can picture, we find the information difficult to comprehend.
Christians believe that God brought Earth, the Sun, the Milky Way and indeed the entire Universe into being. This is likely to have come about at the time of the Big Bang, 13.7 billion years ago.
Imagine you are the God who brought all this into being. Trillions of stars, all designed and created by yourself. As humans we can’t really grasp the notion of knowing every detail of every star in existence, let alone everything else in the Universe. What do we know of other planets in our own solar system let alone those billions of light years away, when there is so much of Earth we haven’t discovered?
God is concerned with huge things well outside our comprehension, true, but he can and really does care about the mundane, just like we do. He cares for us, little insignificant beings that we must feel at times.
Think take a minute or two to consider these quotes:
Nothing is too small or insignificant for God’s attention. He genuinely does care about the little details, the things that bother us and even things which are too small for us to consider! Never think that you can’t confide in your loving Father because your issues are “not important enough”. He loves it when we come to Him in prayer at any time of day or night and it doesn’t matter whether we feel we are communicating effectively or not. Nor does it matter if we are raising a topic of huge concern, or just wanting someone to listen and to provide the love and comfort He wants to give each and every one of us.
