This week its C. J.’s turn!
A huge thought that has recently been crossing my mind is the way that the world has come about. Not specifically the innovations and advances in technology or the economy, but more along the lines of physical things such as humans, plants, animals, etc. When we think of how things came about, lots of people believe that there were two rocks that collided and created everything on earth, but I don’t believe so. When you think about it, you yourself are one of the most complex extremities in the entire universe. A single human body has roughly 37.2 trillion cells, yes, that is 37,200,000,000,000 cells. Our bodies also have 11major organ systems that control every function of all 37.2 trillion cells.Just take a minute to reflect on this, and when you’re reflecting, I want you to think of how every single cell serves a different purpose, but they all work together in unison to keep your body a stable environment.
Now that you have thought of this, realize that all plants and animals that fill the land and sea of the earth are the exact same way. I once heard a short analogy for explaining how complex everything truly is, and it’s that if you take a watch and break it apart into all 1,327 pieces, and you drop it on the floor, how many tries will it take before everything falls into place? Every single tiny screw, gear, piece of metal, all into perfect place to make the watch exactly as before you took it apart. It’s impossible. When I think of such things or see a beautiful landscape or think of the way all organisms have developed I can only think of truly how Great of a God we serve.
The same God that breathes out stars (Psalm 33:6) is the God we serve. The same God that crafted everyone in their mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13-14) is the God we serve. The same God that created every species of animal, every type of plant, human beings, heaven and earth, light, and everything that is good (Genesis 1) is the God we serve. The pattern here is the no matter how extremely big you think, or how extremely small you think, God created it all. In Psalm 139 says “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.” This passage shows the Great size of our Lord and shows that even in the parts of life where it feels as if God is missing, He is always there.
If you ever feel alone, depressed, small, belittled, or just plain upset, trust in you great Heavenly Father, He has a plan for you and will guide you out of your troubles.
