Pastor’s Pen: Bigger than a skyscraper

As we rode the bus to the center of Sao Paulo, the seventh largest city in the world, the buildings were coming closer together and began to reach higher and higher. We drove by a skyscraper that made me feel so small in comparison. That building was massive and I was so tiny sitting in the bus beside it.

It made me think of God. The night before we had heard, in Portuguese, the song, “How Great is Our God.” God is so large that the overpowering height of the structure beside me would be smaller than a Lego in His hand. That building has no significant strength or height compared to the one and only all-powerful God.

Look at this description of God in Isaiah 40, “Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, or with the breadth of His hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance? Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket.”

God is Almighty and is way more massive than any skyscraper built by man or any mountain we may climb. He is God and there is really nothing we can compare to Him.

Take time now to think of how great God is (for help read Job 38-40, Psalm 8, and Isaiah 44) … What did you come up with? Praise God for His almighty power. Then share your discoveries about God’s greatness with someone else.
