“Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom.”
Have you ever wondered why God is being denounced in every aspect of society. The reading of scripture is prohibited in schools of nations all over the world, that had been founded on Christianity. The Bible has been pronounced as illegal material in many countries across the globe. And Christians are viciously being persecuted for their faith. This is all happening in places where atheism is prevalent. The question is, if God doesn’t exist, then why would it matter if individuals wanted to read the Bible or talk about Jesus? What would the big deal be if groups in a public school wanted to meet to pray to a God that, apparently, doesn’t exist?
The answer lies in the fact that God is Great, that there is power in the name of Jesus and that the Holy Spirit is at work. Society shouldn’t care less if they were so sure that God isn’t real – but they aren’t. Any person who simply looks up to the heavens at night, must know that it didn’t all just fall into place by chance. Anybody who sees the miracle of birth cannot deny the fact that there is a creator of life. In fact – He is Life. The earth spins around its own axis at 1669.8km/h. How is it possible that we aren’t all flying off the face of the earth. Gravity, you might say, and that’s true. But it took a creator to know the exact gravity that is needed to make it possible to walk, yet not fly of the earth’s surface. The earth is moving through space, around the sun, at 107 000km/h. That’s just crazy to even imagine without believing that it was perfectly engineered by a creator… God.
When you and I are going through difficult times, let’s keep our eyes on our Great God. He is greater than any circumstance. Let’s remember that this world is not our home and that there is an eternity of perfection waiting for us in the presence of His greatness. This isn’t all there is – this is merely a temporary dwelling on the way to our permanent home. Never forget that the One who holds the world in His hands, is holding you in His arms.
Have an amazing day reflect on Our Great God.
