Have you ever seen the video called Cosmic Eye? It’s an incredible video that starts on someone laying in the grass and it continues to zoom out beyond our earth, then beyond our solar system etc. Then it quickly zooms back in and goes into the eye of that person breaking down the biological make up of our genes and DNA to the most basic atom. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a three minute video you can watch by clicking here.
The universe is absolutely massive, and there are parts of creation we have no clue about! Colossians says, “By Christ all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities: all things were created by him and for him. he is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:16-17). There was intended to be things we would never see on our own or in this lifetime. But one of the things that really caught my attention was “in him all things hold together.”
The very same God that created the universe in it’s entirety and in it’s complexity created and holds you. The same power and authority that commands the rain and the waves when to fall and when to stop speaks life into you. The same breath that is in the wind breathed into your lungs and gives you life. It can be easy to feel small in such a big universe, and yet God intentionally created you.
I don’t know who needed to hear that today, but I hope it gave you comfort and value in the midst of a world that is so complex that we can feel lost. God loves you in ways that you experience and understand, and then some.
