A Higher Perspective


Well, a picture can say a thousand words, so here goes …

As earthlings, it’s sometimes easy to feel like we are the centre of the universe.

After all, compared to our ‘neighbours’ the Earth is pretty big.

We are the ‘bees knees’ and know it all.

Right? …

This is where perspective is needed and we can get this by exploring our universe.

Let’s start by comparing the Earth to Jupiter – the biggest planet in our solar system.

Let’s also compare the Earth and Jupiter to our Sun.

Let’s put our Sun in its rightful place, by comparing it to Arcturus

– one of the brightest stars to be seen from the Earth.

This huge star, Arcturus, is nothing compared to Antares which is massive … some 700 times our Sun’s diameter.

Most of us have probably heard of the Milky Way – the galaxy that contains our solar system.

It is believed there are 200 to 400 billion stars and at least 100 billion planets in the Milky Way.

Can you find planet Earth?

Can you find you?

This huge and awesome Milky Way, is ONLY one of 100 billion galaxies in the ‘known’ Universe.

What does all of this say about our God?

He is the creator of the known and yet unknown Universe.

His creation shows how great and awesome He is.

It doesn’t end there …

These galaxies are nothing compared to His best creation … YOU!

You were created in His image and you are the apple of His eye.

He has awesome plans for you.

Plans to prosper  you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future.

He is ‘out there’ waiting just for you.




What’s your perspective of Him?

Do you acknowledge His presence or His majesty?

Whatever it is, just remember that ….

He’s got this whole Universe ‘thang’ in His hands.

and He is awesome.

Be Blessed
