Ginormas God!

It has been a month since blogging. In the past four weeks I've read a book on Apollo 11, tried to help several marriages that are on the brink of divorce, meet with men who are struggling with life, pastor a multi-site, and attempt to have balance and margin in my life and marriage.

Can't say that I did a good job in any area except I did finish the book on Apollo 11. The other book I'm half way through reading is "God, as He longs for you to see Him" by Chip Ingram

That brings me to what is going on in my brain.

Did you know that there was only three computers on Apollo 11? Each weighed 17.5 pounds and had 36K of memory. We have more memory and computing "power" in our cell phones than what those men used to land on the moon! I'm impressed that NASA even sent men to the moon, and shocked that they did it with such limited computer power!

Thankfully, God is never limited. Chip Ingram states in his book that God is without equal or limitations. He quotes A.W. Tozer from "The Knowledge of the Holy."

"God's sovereignty is the attribute by which He rules His entire creation, and to be sovereign God must be all-knowing, all-powerful, and absolutely free. Were there even one datum of knowledge, however small, unknown to God, His rule would break down at that point. To be Lord over all creation, He must possess all knowledge. And were God lacking one infinitesimal modicum of power, that lack would end His reign and undo His kingdom; that one stray atom of power would belong to someone else and God would be limited ruler and hence not sovereign.

Furthermore, His sovereignty requires that He be absolutely free, which means simply that He must be free to do whatever He wills to do anywhere at any time to carry out His eternal purpose in every single detail without interference. Were He less than free, He must be less than sovereign."

Wow, may I be more impressed knowing that God is limitless and sovereign than realizing how limited and puny we were in getting a man on the moon.
