The Magnificence of God

by David J. Stewart

"Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable." —Psalm 145:3

Ecclesiastes 3:14, “I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.”

God's greatness is UNSEARCHABLE! You're not going to figure out God friend. There are just some things in this life which were not meant for us to know. God has given us a limited amount of knowledge. The Apostle Paul said that we see through a glass darkly for now, but someday we will meet face-to-face with our Savior. We will have a full understanding when that time comes in eternity. For now, we must trust God with all our heart and lean not unto our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6). 

The sooner that we learn that God's ways are higher than our ways, the better off we will be . . .

"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." —Isaiah 55:9

Don't try to figure out God, it is impossible. Do you realize friend that Jesus Christ spoke the world into existence? God almighty, by the Word of His mouth, spoke the universe into existence (2nd Peter 3:5). Psalm 145:3 declares that God's greatness is unsearchable! 

Did you know that there are an estimated 200,000,000,000 galaxies in the universe? Scientists weren't able to discover this until the Hubble Space Telescope was sent into orbit. Just think how many galaxies men will discover when scientists send up bigger and more powerful telescopes?

Did you know that our own Milky Way galaxy has an estimated 100,000,000 stars in it? Did you know that the NEAREST star to the earth is 4.6 light years away? How far is one light year? Are you ready for this? Light travels at 186,282 miles per second. Multiply 186,282 times the number of seconds in a year and you'll have A BIG NUMBER. One light year is equal to 6,000,000,000,000 miles. That's SIX TRILLION miles! The nearest star to the earth is an estimated 26,400,000,000,000 miles away! God is truly magnificent and His greatness is unsearchable. 

Our own Milky Way galaxy is 70,000 light years across. If you could travel at the speed of light, it would take 1,000 lifetimes to travel from one end to the other. Amazing! How big is the universe?  It is a perplexing thought, there is no answer other than God.

 "As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all." Ecclesiastes 11:5

Scientists have no idea what causes life. With all the modern advancements in medicine and surgery, doctors are still perplexed as to what causes the human body to sneeze.   The cause of the common cold is still unknown.  There is more that doctors do not know than do know.  Did you know that 250,000 people are killed each year in the United States alone because of doctor and nurse mistakes?  It is true.  Human life is so frail, a simple allergic reaction can kill a person in minutes.  People have died from peanut oil, seafood, yeast, etc..  Our bodies are so susceptible and yet look how fearfully and wonderfully we are created.  Listen to the great words of King David...

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." Psalm 139:14

The human body is no accident!  The human anatomy didn't just "evolve."  And your great grand daddy surely wasn't a gorilla.  He might have looked like a gorilla, but he was no gorilla.  I see some people today that act like animals, but no gorillas.  The human body is a divine work of art by a loving Creator.  Did you know that there are literally miles of blood vessels running through your body?  Did you know that the human heart weighs approximately 10 ounces and beats about 40,000,000 times each year?  That's about 100,000 times day!  The heart beats about 3,000,000,000 times in the average person's life.  The heart muscle is truly incredible.  Did you know that there are nearly 45 miles of nerves running through our bodies?  The human heart pumps an average of about 48,000,000 gallons of blood in it's lifetime.  Our hearing is so sensitive that it can distinguish between hundreds of thousands of different sounds.  In one square inch of our hand we have nine feet of blood vessels, 600 pain sensors, 9000 nerve endings, 36 heat sensors and 75 pressure sensors.  The human skeleton contains 206 bones.  Only a fool would attest such complexity of order and design to evolution.  God is a magnificent God!

Did you know that the surface area of the human lung is equal to that of a tennis court?  Did you know that the human body contains about 6,000 miles of blood vessels?  Did know know that there are more living organisms on the skin of a single human being than there are human beings on the surface of the earth?  Kind of scary if you ask me.  The miracle of life is an amazing proof of a divine Creator.  Nature speaks boldly of God's goodness and power (Psalm 19:1).  Oh that men and women would praise the Lord for His greatness!  Jesus Christ is Almighty God, our Creator and Redeemer. 

Ecclesiastes 3:17, “God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.”

Luke 1:37, "For with God nothing shall be impossible."

Souls Are Dying!

"Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable." —Psalm 145:3

Don't make the foolish mistake of trying to analyze and understand God, for His greatness is unsearchable.

It's not what you're doing that gets you to Heaven, it's where you're looking. Look to Jesus!
