Have you ever noticed the amazingly HUGE amount of devotional type articles there are on the internet? Blogs are full of them. Ministry sites have tons of them. Church websites are laden with them. There are more devotions on the net than spam! (Praise the Lord) If you go to Lifeway Christian Book Store or any other book store, you will find hundreds of devotion books. The one that always cracks me up is "The One-Minute Devotional". What's up with that? If you can only give God one minute per day, you need more help than a 60 second quick-read pep-talk can give (just my opinion - remember it is my blog). My point here is that bookstores are flooded with devotional books already.
Anyway, after we talked I was thinking about this. Isn't it funny that there ARE so many devotional books? Isn't it funny that there are so many blogs where people share their Christian faith? Isn't it funny that there are millions of believers in the world and God speaks something different to each one?
God has billions of children living on the earth now and those who lived in years past. He has a different word for each of us - a different plan for our lives. Each one of us could write a devotional book and each book would be filled with different experiences, different struggles, different victories. So many people, so many unique lives lived down through the ages --it boggles the mind - makes us humble.
I cannot fathom the enormity of the universe - my mind is much too simple (the blog readability test DID say I am on a Jr. High level). I cannot picture infinite time. I cannot understand how God know each of us long before we were knit together. It is truly beyond me how He could create trillions of people, each unique - with unique experiences, unique fears, unique appearance..........He wrote the script of our lives (trillions of lives) long before we were born. Each one different, yet each one of us completely His. Completely sinful, yet completely loved.
I find it all unfathomable, indescribable, amazing.
