Today’s reading is drawn from Exodus 2:25.
Consider the earth! Our globe’s weight has been estimated at six sextillion tons (a six with twenty-one zeroes). Yet it is precisely tilted at twenty-three degrees; any more or any less and our seasons would be lost in a melted polar flood. Though our globe revolves at the rate of one-thousand miles per hour or twenty-five thousand miles per day or nine million miles per year, none of us tumbles into orbit . . .
As you stand . . . observing God’s workshop, let me pose a few questions. If he is able to the stars in their sockets and suspend the sky like a curtain, do you think it is remotely that God is able to guide your life? If your God is mighty enough to ignite the sun, could it be that he is mighty enough to light your path? If he cares enough about the planet to give it rings or Venus to make it sparkle, is there an outside chance that he cares about you to meet your needs?
