Have you ever wondered about the size of God’s love? In order to
try and grasp that reality look with me at some facts about outer space – something
God created with just the sound of His voice. Take our sun for example. It is
huge. 1.3 million Earths could fit inside our sun. There is a star called VY
Canis Majoris located 3,900 light years from Earth. One billion of our suns
would fit inside the interior of this star. VY Canis Majoris is so large that a
passenger jet traveling at 540 miles per hour would need 1,100 years to
circumnavigate the star. In other words if the jet departed in the year 916, in
the depths of the Dark Ages, it would be just pulling into the arrival gate at
you local airport.

So how big is the love of God? It is more profound in size than the human race will ever be able to calculate no matter how advanced
we become. The length, width, depth and height of God’s love is without calculation.

Today, stop and place your problems and doubts inside the
measurements of the VY Canis Majoris and try to imagine a love beyond the mind-blowing dimensions of that single star. There are trillions and trillions of similar stars
hanging in the depths of unexplored space beyond our current ability to probe their
existence. Ponder that for a moment. That is the immensity of the love of your

This is the God who is aware of a single sparrow falling to
the Earth. This is the God who knows the number of hairs on your head. This is
the God to whom you pray when things get rough. This is the God who can be
trusted because He is the ultimate authority of all things both here on this
dinky little planet called Earth or on the surface of VY Canis Marjois and
beyond. You can trust His love.

“And may you have
the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high,
and how deep his love is.” Ephesians 4:18
