Psalm 139:10, If I go up to heaven, You are there; if I go down to the grave, You are there, if I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there Your hand will guide me, and Your strength will support me.
I was actually trying to find another verse but could not find it, but I found this one instead and I believe God wants me to use this one. The other verse was describing how big God was by saying that we can’t imagine the height, width or the length or depth of God. When I finish off my prayers I usually say the glory be prayers three time before signing myself of the cross five times. One day I decided to raise my hands up high in the air while saying the glory be prayer and try to use my imagination to see to the best of my ability the height, width, depth and length of God. I realised I am smaller than a molecule before God and that if He was like us He wouldn’t even be able to see us at all since we are so small. When we reflect on Psalm 139:10 David can’t imagine anything further than the farthest oceans that seemed unreachable to him. Now days most of us have television, so we are seeing nations all over the world often, so it no big deal for us and many people have travelled around the world so that statement would not be so incredible to some of them. But in his day to imagine something so far away was too much for his mind to comprehend. Now we see pictures of the universe.
Vision Of How Small We Are
I then laid down to listen to my soaking music and while I was very relaxed God showed me some things that I knew if I didn’t try earlier on how to imagine how big God really was and how small we really are, I would not of got the vision at all. You know what Jesus says ‘seek and you will find.’ The vision God gave me, He let me have a yard still to measure Him somewhat with. It is mind blowing. He showed me Himself as a Man and around Him was trees and a sky etc. Of course God is in all that too, so He is showing me He can only give me a very small idea how big He is. Like I said He showed me Himself as a man and as the bible says I don’t know the exact words are but it says, He holds us in the palm of His hand. Not only does He holds us in the palm of His hand, He holds the whole universe in the palm of His hand so comfortably. The whole universe is so small in His hand. Then you try to think that is just the palm of His hand what about the rest of Him. Our planet is so small you couldn’t see it never alone us.
We Are So Tiny
Now this is the thing, we are so small the word tiny doesn’t describe us at all and then when we think of our big egos getting in the way of everything. God is so patient with us, He truly loves us more than we can ever comprehend. Even in heaven we will not see the full extent of His love for us. He is too big it would kill us if He showed it all to us. I understand a bit more why He had to come down to earth as a man not only to save us, but so we could approach Him. Don’t ever listen to the lies of Satan when he tells you, you are not worthy of His love. God just wants our love and if we give Him that in all truth He will gladly overlook our weakness. Because if we truly love Him we will do our best to please Him and God knows how we weak we are, He just wants our love. He has been telling people that over and over again to somebody in every generation and in this generation to many, because Jesus is truly coming soon.
Be Darling Let Go And Love As A Child
To deepen your love for God, be daring, let yourself go and be a child again. I have a book on Song of Songs in the Passion Translation. For those who don’t know what the Song of Songs is, it is a book in the Old Testament part of the Bible. It is Our Lord speaking to His bride which is the Church, every true follower of Jesus Christ is His bride. I wrote down all my favourite parts in it and then I composed a prayer reminding Him what He said and I was getting very cheeky with Him, out of love of course and I know He loved it and it has helped me to get even closer to Him. Try it for yourself or something similar. The more you give the more you receive. I know a great many guys have problems with this, thinking themselves as brides of Christ. Women too have problems getting their heads around things when we are described as first born sons, and described as kings etc. These descriptions are explaining spiritual things using something we can comprehend by. A yard stick so to speak, to help us understand something that is very hard for us to get the gist of otherwise. Jesus is our spiritual lover. Jesus is not only a man but He is also God. Men and women fall in love with the God side of Jesus. It is not cardinal at all.
