Did you know that the Earth contains 352 (352,000,000,000,000,000,000) gallon-sized milk containers of water? And yet, Isaiah 40:12 says that God can measure all of the water on the Earth in the hollow of His Hand.
Did you also know that the Earth weighs over 13 septillion (13,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) pounds? Yet Isaiah 40:12 goes on to say that God can calculate and measure all of the dust of the Earth, the mountains and hills.
The universe stretches out more than 200 sextillion miles (2000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000). Yet God can measure the universe by the width of His Hand.
Scientists claim that there are over 100 billion galaxies, and each galaxy has over 100 billion stars. Yet Isaiah 40:26 says that God who created the stars, can call each star by name.
So, if our God can hold the ocean in the palm of His Hand, if He can consider the weight of the dust of the Earth, if He can measure the width of the universe with the span of his hand, and he can call each star by its name, then He can most assuredly handle the problems and difficulties of our lives! ““Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest”(Joshua 1:9). There is nothing that God cannot do, for with God, all things are possible! (Mark 10:27).
Therefore, seek God’s Help in times of trouble through the avenue of prayer, and God will be with you, if you are obedient and faithful to Him! This is the only way that we can have the peace that passes all understanding that the apostle Paul speaks of in Philippians 4:7. The life of the faithful Christian is truly the best life we can have here on the Earth because we have God on our side no matter what happens to us in this life. May we all work every day to be more like Christ and less like ourselves so that we will be able to have wonderful lives here, and even better lives in eternity!
