My prayer this morning is that God would realign and readjust your thinking according to the truth of the gospel.  Isaiah 40.12 tells us that God measures the waters in the hollow of His hand, and metes out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance.   Each of these statements highlights the immensity of God, to Whom the universe is a small thing. Big God, small universe.

Beloved, if you are in Christ Jesus this morning, this God has your life in His hands. Your times are in His hands.  Your eternal soul rests in His nail scarred hands. May we lift our eyes towards this advent The One Who is greater than all of our sorrows, all of our pain and even death itself. Our Great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
