“You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you.”
Yesterday I visited the largest aquarium in the world. It is found on the beautiful island of Okinawa. It was spectacular. The main viewing gallery boasts an enormous water tank that holds some of the biggest fish I ever saw in my life. From majestic sting-rays (bigger than a car), to huge sharks, tunas and of course whales (the size of buses).
When I saw these incredible fish, I was truly speechless. It not only reminded me of how amazing God is to have designed so many types, colours and species of fish, but the sheer size of them reminded me how big God is. It is only when things are put into perspective in our eyes than we can begin to start to fathom how much bigger God is than us.
When you are flying in an aeroplane and look down on the earth, humanity just seems like a spec. In space, islands seem likes a spec. In God’s universe, earth seems like a spec. Yet God is even out of time and space itself. To God, even the universe is like a spec. Yet incredibly, He chose to make human’s in His likeness and chose to sacrifice His only Son for our sakes.
We may be physically small, but to God we priceless. We are His. We are created to worship Him and give Him the glory and honour He deserves.
