Your God is Too Small

As we survey the majesty of the heavens, with what we can see with our own eyes and the eyes of scientific achievement, we stand amazed at the largeness of our Creator who holds all things together. Although we cannot truly understand this truth with our finite minds, we do accept it on faith believing that someday we will fully understand. For now, all we can do is trust that our Father in heaven will give us what we need when we need it. We are fully aware of this great quest of the scientific community. We know they long for the answers to their many questions that we have already known and accepted through faith. As they spend billions of dollars to examine the universe, they will be left with more questions than answers because their finite minds cannot and will not be able to comprehend the majesty of the heavens with all its profound secrets that are way beyond their wildest imaginations. All of their brilliant calculations, even with the help of AI, will be unable to add up the magnitude of everything in the universe, seen and unseen, that’s divinely working together. They can produce amazing images from infrared that they claim can go almost back to the beginning of the universe picturing a vast number of star systems, but it still only represents one grain of sand in comparison to the whole universe.

How can they ever hope to understand the majesty of the beginning in its wholeness? Moreover, how can they understand what they cannot see, namely the invisible? All the most expensive and most powerful telescopes in the world cannot see the invisible that holds everything together and causes everything to work together for good. Our God is invisible (Colossians 1:15), and God and His Kingdom cannot be seen by man (I Timothy 6:16) unless God allows it. Some have even postulated the existence of a multiverse perhaps even before our universe existed. On the other hand, we as God’s beloved children accept on faith that God has always existed before time itself and the creation of our known universe. We accept on faith that there is a literal heaven and hell that cannot be observed by some powerful space telescope. We are not limited to one universe, but we have many universes or different realities for all of God’s marvelous creatures that one day will join us in heaven to sit around the throne of glory (Revelation 4:1-11). Our God is not too small, for we cannot in our finite minds ever fathom God’s total capacity or His profound existence in every dimension or universe. Our God is not too small.

As humanity draws closer to the end of our existence, then the rush is on to discover other things beyond their ability or capacity to fully understand. As the great space telescopes search the known universe, others are working feverishly here on earth searching for the unseen particle that holds everything together. Humanity is spending billions of dollars smashing atoms at nearly the speed of light looking for the so-called God particle that essentially holds everything together. They refer to this unseen particle as dark matter, which is a misnomer because, in reality, it’s not dark but invisible. Furthermore, there is another little project in the former gold mine in South Dakota. They have gone deep underground looking for this mysterious dark matter joining fallen humanity’s quest to unlock the secrets of the universe and our existence. What they are looking for they will never truly see, for it will not be seen with human eyes but with the eyes of faith. God is always showing us in little miracles that He is much closer than you think. God fills everything we can see and everything we can’t see. If God was not there, then everything seen, and unseen would cease to exist. God truly holds everything together (Colossians 1:17).

We don’t need to search the universe with our space telescopes or smash atoms together or dig deep into the ground to find God and the meaning of life. God is here, all around us, every moment of every day. No matter where we go, God is already there. God truly sees everything. He is a part of everything seen and unseen. This should be a tremendous wake-up call for everyone. We cannot hide from God by the dark of night or by the closing of a door to hide our sins. We cannot even hide our thoughts from God because God is already there knowing everything we will ever think before we even think it. Remember, it was the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who said that He is the Alpha and the Omega (Revelation 22:13), the beginning, and the end. Jesus Christ encompasses all of time. If we as Christians really believed this truth, then we would be highly motivated to keep in step with the Spirit allowing Him to lead us and guide us from one little miracle to another. Things simply don’t happen by accident because we know that our God is always in control, working out everything to the very best for those who have been called (Romans 8:28).

God does not want us to spend all of our time and money searching for what is already predetermined to happen. There is nothing new under the sun. God wants us to enjoy every moment of the life that He has given us. We must learn to allow things to happen even if they go against our little schedules or limitations. We must learn to step out of our so-called comfort zones and allow God to bring forth one little miracle after another. Over the years, I have seen many miracles when I least expected them to happen, but I can tell you they always happened when I stopped my own quest and followed God close behind. I always call them little miracles because God is making the invisible visible. He gives us Spiritual eyes to really see what is happening at that very moment in our life and the lives of others. Humanity is missing so much because they refuse to use the eyes of faith given to every believer when they receive the indwelling Spirit to dwell with them every moment of every day. Wow! The miracle of life is not looking through a space telescope, smashing atoms, or digging in the mines of South Dakota. No, the miracle of life is residing within us to chart an amazing journey in this existence and beyond.

We must allow God to take us by the hand and teach us how to look at the heart of others and not the face that they want us to see. God can allow us to look at their hearts, not to pry, but to give them life from the amazing light from within us to the glory of God. Simply put, others will not be interested in the message of the Cross if they can’t see the enormous change in our lives. If all they see is a judgmental spirit that always finds fault, then they will not be interested. If all they see is a robot doing the same thing over and over with no willingness to change then they will not be interested. However, the God who is in us through the Holy Spirit is always  ready to stop and spend all the time necessary to bring the spark of life to one of His children. We must also be ready to stop whatever we are doing if God is leading us in a different direction. If humanity wants to understand the meaning of life, then God is willing to stop and bring them by the hand into a most amazing existence to overcome the old sin nature and experience His love flowing through them to others. This is the true meaning of life. It will open up a whole new world giving us Spiritual eyes to see one little miracle after another. Rejoice in what you have seen with your physical eyes, but nothing can match what we can see with our Spiritual eyes unlocking the true secrets of the universe. If your God is not too small, then you will experience the wonder and majesty of His great power through faith. You will witness one little miracle after another. All glory to God!
