Isn’t it truly amazing and mind-boggling to think about how awesome our God is?
I was overwhelmed with this thought as I looked at the vastness of this earth while cruising up some 37,000 feet in an airplane.
Our God is so awesome that He has more knowledge, wisdom and power than all the people in this world put together.

I started to think how man has used his brain and technology to do so much over the years. Man has the knowledge to design and make airplanes that can fly over 500 people and all their luggage half way across the world.
Yet, man doesn’t have the power to design and create the space the plane travels through.
Man can make computers that produce mathematical calculations in hundredths of a second that would take a day to do by hand.
But, man can’t control or calculate the length of his life span here on earth.
Man now has the wisdom to perform delicate brain surgery, and in most cases have the person lead a “normal” life.
Yet, man doesn’t have the ability to create a human brain, or revive it once dead.
As I continued to reflect on the vastness of this earth and our awesome God that created everything, there was one thought that really amazed me.
Though I am such a little, little part of this vast earth, with all it’s surroundings, all the animals and all the billions of people in the huge world, our awesome God has the capacity to know, love and care for ME!
How everything, even my life, can be under His control is so awesome and mind-boggling!
Our God is so awesome that He does the same for YOU!
He knows, loves, and cares for YOU!!
How awesome is the Lord Most High, the great King over all the earth! –Psalm 47:2 (NIV)
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? –Psalm 8:3-4 (NIV)
