Oh How We Underestimate God

Just got done reading a book called, "In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day" by Mark Batterson. I highly recommend that you give it a read. Well worth your time. Here is one of my favorite sections from the book:

Astronomers have spied galaxies 12.3 billion light-years from earth. To put that distance into perspective, consider the fact that light traveling 186,000 miles per second only takes eight 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 billions 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 and how good God really is.

We underestimate God's goodness and greatness by at least 12.3 billion light-years.

Now that's pretty darn cool!
