Humbling, isn't it?  And yet God knows how many hairs are on your head, and not even a single sparrow dies apart from his will (Matthew 10:29-31).  How big are the things that upset you today?  How big is your God?

This is a particularly effective way to show the relative sizes. And the current Astronomers believe that we can only see a very small part of the universe with our most powerful telescopes. GOD IS GREAT!!!

WOW!!  Exactly what I needed to see after another depressing staff meeting about more lay offs.  Wow!  God is amazing!  I'm so glad He is in control!

3 He heals the brokenhearted
       and binds up their wounds.

 4 He determines the number of the stars
       and calls them each by name.

 5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
       his understanding has no limit. (Psalm 147:3-5)
