How Big is God?

by Steve Ray on September 2, 2007

He is quite amazingly big, if you can say He actually has a size. Yesterday the grandkids and I turned over a log to find a nest of red ants. We thought about how big we were to the ants. The ants must be saying, "Oh no, giants just picked up our city!" Reminds me of old Twilight Zone episodes.

Compare you to the size of the earth, and the size of the earth to the sun, and the size of the sun to the next largest star and then . . .

Click here to see how small we are and why we should be very amazed that a God who can create all this, still loves us enough to send His Son to die for us and His Holy Spirit to indwell us. It is really quite amazing.

Hey Mom (Mary) and Aunt Jan!!!!
I saw the two of you on video, just barely, and it truly brought tears to my eyes. I could see how happy the two of you were, or maybe I could feel it, because I am sure you are both very tired. We are so thrilled for you and are praying everyday for you as I know you are for us. We love you both very much!

All our love and prayers,
Donna

Hello there.
When I was a small boy i read the
all time favorite kids book called
” The adventures of Robinson Crusoe”

I am reminded of how graded the world is. Some
think us too big, others think us too small, but we
know our status quo. Our level in life, how far we
reach.

I think our quest for how big is GOD is a stretch to our imagination.
But still, we can never abnegate the fact that he always is bigger than us.
