“In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.” Psalm 95:4Psalm 95
When I was seven, I once tried to dig a hole to the other side of the earth. I imagined that if I dug straight, eventually I would pop out, upside down, in some bustling Chinese marketplace. What kid hasn’t dreamed of doing this? I didn’t know then that my 7,916 miles of digging would end not in China, but probably in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
I can laugh now at the thought of my ambitious undertaking. After the dirt of my own backyard, I would have had to dig through miles of rock before reaching the mantle, the outer core, and the inner core with its white-hot combination of nickel, aluminum, and iron. Who knows what else I’d find along the way? Well, God does. He knows every inch of what He has made.
I like thinking about that. As strong as the earth is under my feet, God is stronger. He holds in His hand every continental shelf, every ocean, every seven-year-old with a shovel. Lots of things are impossible for me, but nothing is impossible for God, even rising up from the grave with salvation for me.
Is there something you think God is incapable of doing? There is nothing too deep or too high for Him!
