Have you ever been completely overwhelmed at the myriad of the world’s problems, our country’s problems, your own problems, family problems, and friend’s problems, and the many, many problems, problems everywhere? Boy, I have!
To change my perspective, I downloaded NASA space images on my computer screen saver. I first looked at a photo of earth from space. I could see the United States, but my problem was nowhere to be seen, and the person who seemed so huge on earth was so very tiny that they couldn’t be seen either.
The same God who created the billions and trillions of stars, counts the stars, knows them by name, and still cares enough to know the numbers of hairs on your head. He knows everything that will happen in advance and nothing will ever catch Him by surprise.
Zooming out from our problems, helps us realize we are only a miniscule spot in the cosmos, and our problems are so very small when we remember how VERY BIG God is!
God is holy, high and lifted up, Creator of all, ruler of all, sovereign over all, and He is always in control. God’s big enough to handle anything that comes your way. Therefore, zoom out from the problems and zoom in on your loving, faithful, all-is-possible God.
“He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them. Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.” Psalm 147:4-5, NASB
“Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, You who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens! 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 think of him, And a son of man that You are concerned about him? Psalm 8:1,3-4, NASB
“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? Yet not one of them has [ever] been forgotten in the presence of God. Indeed the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not be afraid; you are far more valuable than many sparrows.” Luke 12:6-7, AMP
Therefore, “…I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 (NASB)
