Great Memory

How many names can you remember of the people you have met in the past?  I have a hard time remembering the names of someone I met even a few months ago.  I do much better remembering faces.  I know there are little tricks and tools you can use to remember names to associate with the faces, but I just never really learned those tricks.

Can you imagine being able to remember more than 150 sextillion names?  Yes, that’s 150,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 names!  There are more than 100 billion stars in our galaxy which is known as the Milky Way.  There are also probably more than 150 billion galaxies outside of the Milky Way.  The Sun is 93 million miles away from planet Earth.  The closest star to us is Alpha Centauri which is really a triple star system that is bound together by gravity.  Alpha Centauri is 4.24 light years away from us or approximately 25 trillion miles.  That just gives you the magnitude of our galaxy alone and how big GOD really is.

 GOD created all of the stars and all of the galaxies in existence.  In Psalm 147:4 KJV it is written “He telleth the number of the stars, he calleth them all by their names.”  All I can say is wow!

Scientists have determined that an average person weighing approximately 154 pounds has roughly 70 trillion cells. Yes, that’s 70, 000,000,000,000 cells in one single human body.  There are approximately 7.125 billion people on planet earth today or approximately 5 octillion human cells in existence.  GOD created every cell just like the stars and knows about every cell.  “I will praise him; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works, and that thy soul knoweth right well.” Psalm 139:14 = KJV.

What a big and amazing, all-knowing, all-powerful GOD!  He is so big and great, and yet he cares and knows about each of us and what we are going through at every moment in our lives. He knows about every single cell. He knows each or our names and has inscribed them on the palms of his hands.  He cares about our welfare and has great plans for us just like all of his creation.

    When I was a child on the farm I remember one night laying in the open field and gazing at all the stars and thinking how big and powerful Jehovah is. It made me feel very small and insignificant.Then, I felt His presence saying to me:”Yeah, but I love you.” A wonderful feeling of love and peace enveloped me. I pray that memory lasts a lifetime.
