I saw a cool thing yesterday about perspective. It talked about how vast the universe is and how truly small we are. It shows the earth in comparison to other planets, then the sun; then the sun compared to other stars. Then our galaxy. Then the knives.
It is truly mind-blowing to see how amazingly big the universe is, and yet how small we are in comparison. It really gives you some perspective than things are different that what we may think that they are.
Today in our reading, we kind of see the same thing with James 4: 13-14. Listen to what it says:
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
Let me ask you. How important is it really? Stop right now, and ask yourself that question. How important is it really?
Will it be as important tomorrow? Next week? Next month? Next year? A year from now?
It’s going to be ok. Really. It is. No matter what. It is. There is a huge, mighty God that made all of this that we see, all that is going on, all that is around us. Made it all.
And He wants to know you.
Today, remember. This life is just a glimpse in eternity. Don’t be consumed by this moment. Don’t be consumed by this problem. Don’t be consumed by this circumstance.
It’s going to be ok. It is. Remember there’s a God that is bigger than us, stronger than us, mightier than us.
And He loves us.
Trust Him today. Trust Him for eternity. It’s going to be ok.
