Psalm 96:1-13

I think that people these days are not really able to conceive of just how big our God truly is. Maybe we have forgotten. Maybe we have never known. Maybe we get so full of ourselves that the question isn’t of God anymore, but “How could there be anything bigger than myself?” This is classic sinful human behavior. Taking the world and all that is in it, and making it about myself. All of the good, all of the evil, all of the pleasure that life contains and the disappointments become about me. Self-focus. Sin. But you see, God is big. Not matter what we might believe about God, this world, or ourselves, God is still giant. The creator whom the world should, “Worship..and tremble before..” is the creator of all things. If you want to remember just how big the creator of this world truly is, then I want you to do this. On a nice clear night, step outside, and look up at the splendor of our galaxy. Remind yourself that our galaxy is just one of billions of galaxies in the universe. Remember that God created all of this one way or another. See just how small and frail we really are and yet among all of this bold intense creation God still desires to be in relationship with you…Step outside and remember just how big our God is…

Gracious, Almighty most powerful God. Thank you for making me special. Amen
