How small we are

As I said yesterday, God is so much larger than we can even imagine. I saw a quote on a church's electronic sign the other day that said something like if we think we understand God we have failed to know him.

God is so much larger than we know.

Looking down at ants, I often think that is how small we are. I think that is not even small enough. Our world is probably like the size of an ant, or even smaller. We are like the size of a microscopic organism. Our abilities are about the same as that as compared to all God can do.

The times I feel closest to God are often the times when I sit back and look at the sky. Here are some images from the Hubble Space Telescope that show us a little bit about how great our God really is:

And just so we know God is watching us from outside our small little universe:
