We are small

Job 11:7-9 - "Do you know how deep the mysteries of God are? Can you discover the limits of the Mighty One's knowledge? They are highter than the heavens. What can you do? They are deeper than the deepest grave. What can you know? They are longer than the earth. They are wider than the ocean."

God uses the phrase "as far as east is from the west". Do you really think that that is how far God is talking about? Most of you think about the Earth. But there are more places in this life than Earth. I like this example in a devotional book I've read. We usually baby talk to our babies, right? Like, we say "guchie guchie goo!" We know way more than that baby knows, so we have to speak to their level. Well God is doing that to us. He is talking to us so that we understand, but God knows way more than us. So when he says "as far as east is from the west" he actually means more than we can imagine. I want you to watch this video. It's only four minutes, but it captures how small we are. It just makes you even think "Why does God love us? We aren't even microscopic in this world!" Please. Watch this video. It will give you something to think about.
