The Earth is the Lord’s


“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Ps 24:1






“What puny figures you and I are, by comparison with the whole planet on which we live! Yet what is this entire mighty planet by comparison with God! “He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in” (Is 40:22). The world dwarfs us all, but God dwarfs the world. The world is his footstool, above which he sits secure. He is greater than the world and all that is in it, so that all the feverish activity of its bustling millions does no more to affect him than the chirping and jumping of grasshoppers in the summer sun does to affect us. Behold your God!” – Knowing God, J.I. Packer

How often I need to be reminded of my own smallness compared to God’s majestic presence. I have to say with the Psalmist “Such knowledge is to wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it”. Ps 139:6
