IN EVERY PLACE AND CIRCUMSTANCE OF LIFE SHOULD BE A MEDITATION ON WHAT GOD SEES AND KNOWS
Did you ever contemplate what God sees, what God hears, what God knows?
Of course, we can't.
But consider (or try) just for a moment.
When you're driving, when you're passing a small country town, or a huge city, or just a farm, consider that God knows every single person in that place and what they're doing and what they're struggling with, He knows the saints, He knows the criminals, He knows every single hidden thing, every hair on every person and on every squirrel and every...
He watches bacteria.
When you're passing a river, or boating on one, consider that God knows every molecule of the landscape, He knows exactly how many fish there actually are, He knows why they bite when they do, He knows their struggles and level of awareness and dangers. He knows, in dark waters, what's below you.
He sees all.
He has the vantage point from above.
He sees over every tree.
He knows all the circumstances of your life (in totally intricate detail).
Can you imagine intimately knowing seven billion people -- each more intimately than they know themselves?
Can you imagine knowing the more than a hundred billion people who -- they say -- have walked the earth since the advent of time?
He knows why we say what we say and do what we do and think what we think; He knows what's in our souls, our deepest hearts; He sees each time we fall to temptation -- and places it all in perspective. He sees what we were born with. He sees the spirits around us. What we have long forgotten, God still knows (though if a confessed sin, He may choose to forget it).
Only if you can see likewise should you judge.
In an airport, you board a plane with a couple hundred other people not even sure where their journeys have originated and where they will end, but God knows. He knows every single schedule on earth -- past, present, and future. He knows where the baggage is.
Passing a beach, the Lord God, the High Almighty (praise Him!), knows exactly how many grains of sand there are and how many molecules in each grain, and how many electrons and protons and fractals and interior inverted universes.
Try to see likewise.
How can one not love Him with a full heart?
He knows what the truck driver next to you on the highway is thinking and going through. Each atom is a solar system, and He sees all of them. They say there are billions and in some cases trillions of stars in each galaxy and billions of galaxies and (they claim) the observable universe is forty-six billion light years in radius -- meaning it would take a hundred billion years traveling at the speed of light (186,000 miles a second) to traverse it.
That's the observable part.
What about the parts we can't even glimpse?
Are there other universes?
How do we even define "universe"?
Then there is eternity.
Here, we have not even a vague hope of conceiving.
Science is at a loss.
To eternity, the universe is smaller than an atom.
That tunnel during near-death experiences?
Many say it's like traveling through the cosmos -- but at warp speed.
Is the tunnel simply the stars moving together to form that funnel in a timeless realm (such that stars speed up and leave a trail)?
One day we'll see.
One day, we'll understand how, in Heaven, there is music -- but without a beat (because there is no time); and no past, present, or future; just "now."
"Eye has not seen" (at least not the deeper realms).
Oh, we hear from many who, on the brink of death, have gotten a glimpse. And we'll have to leave it at that. When it comes to what God sees, we can only have an impression that is minuscule. "I found myself in a place of such beauty and peace," said a woman named Alice Morrison. "It was timeless and spaceless. I was aware of delicate and shifting hues of colors with their accompanying 'rainbow' sounds. It might have felt like wind and bells, were it earthly."
But of course, it was not.
[The well-composed image above was recorded over a period of nearly two hours as a series of thirty second long, consecutive exposures on the night of October 5, 2013. The exposures were made with a digital camera fixed to a tripod near Almaden de la Plata, province of Seville, in southern Spain. The star trails reflect the earth's daily rotation around its axis. By extension, the axis of rotation leads to the center of the concentric arcs in the night sky. Convenient for northern hemisphere night sky photographers and celestial navigators alike, the bright star Polaris is very close to the North Celestial Pole and so makes the short bright trail in the central gap between the leafy branches.]
