It’s easy to believe that our problems are insurmountable. Somehow, no matter how much we believe in God, we continuously believe that our problems, whatever they may be, are far too difficult for God to handle. Of course they are not; however, in order to put all problematic issues in our lives in full perspective, let’s take a look at our Solar System. But, before we do, think of the biggest, most difficult, completely overwhelming problem that exists in your life right now. Is it a truly massive problem? –I mean really enormous?
Then, say this out loud. “Is there anything too hard for God?” “-No!”
Pictured above, is a digital rendering of the planets in our solar system. Today we know that there are thousands of galaxies, all with their own planetary formations within the universe. But for now, simply look at the picture. Saturn is simple enough for you to find, it’s the ringed planet in the center; and, our Sun is the giant yellow orb in the background. However, can you locate Earth in the photo? – If so, decide which one it is now.
We know that Science and technology proves God every day. So, just imagine for one moment how small and insignificant we feel in reference to the size of our earth; now, imagine how small these planets are in reference to the Sun. And, because of the Hubble telescope, we now know that there are energy masses within the universe that are 10 times larger than our sun. –Ten times!
Yet, just so you keep your problem in perspective; take a look at the photo again. Earth is the third planet from the left with the tiny little orb next to it. The Heavens truly do declare the glory of the Lord! God keeps everything in perfect order! –Nothing is out of alignment. So, keep your massive problem in perspective in relation to God. The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path.”
So remember, there is nothing too hard for God! If He can handle the intricate rotation of the planets; and, maintain the delicate balance of the universe, is there really anything plaguing your life that He cannot handle? L.
