The Heavens…& Earth (a metric)

Isaiah 55:8-9

New King James Version (NKJV)

8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

“Astronomers have spied galaxies 12.3 Billion light years from the earth. To put that distance into perspective, consider the fact that light traveling 186,000 miles per second only takes 8 minutes to travel the 93 million miles between the sun and planet earth.

Sunlight is only eight minutes old.

But light from the furthest galaxy takes 12.3 billion years to get here. That distance is virtually incomprehensible!

And God says that is about the distance between His thoughts and our thoughts. Your BEST thought about God on your BEST day falls 12.3 billion light years short of how great & how good God really is.”

-Mark Batterson, from In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day
