What does a worm think about? Even a crack in the sidewalk could be an astronomical problem to a worm. Getting from one side of the garden to the other side would take great time and effort. A worm knows nothing of the mysteries of the moon. He only knows that it lights his path. He knows nothing of the world’s oceans or the earth’s wind currents, let alone all the vast wonders of science and the world on which he crawls. That is exactly how we are compared to God – a worm. “Fear not, thou worm Jacob…” (Isaiah 41:14). We can’t even begin to imagine the vast wonders of God. We are as oblivious to the wonders of God as that little worm. Our small minds can’t comprehend the thoughts of God. Isaiah 55:8 tells us, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” We are but worms.
Thought for Today: Consider the wonders of God and the vastness of His greatness.
