Libraries Display the Vastness of God


Libraries are places filled with all sorts of stories and interesting facts. I could spend hours in a library wandering through the aisles, picking up a book here and there to read bits and pieces of enthralling fantasies, exciting history, and interesting facts about science, geography, and art.


Even after spending so much time in a library, I can’t even begin to understand or know all the facts and stories that lie within the pages of the books on the shelves.


The same goes for God. He holds endless knowledge about infinitely more things than we can ever dream of putting in a library.  God is huge! Isaiah 40: 12 says, “Who else has held the oceans in His hand? Who has measured off the heavens with His fingers? Who else knows the weight of the earth or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale?” God could cup the oceans in His hands! God is infinite in size, power, and knowledge. To understand God, we must continually study Him and spend time with Him.


Just like a library, God has a book–the Bible–and He’s the main character. However, unlike the characters in books in a library, God has the ability to come out of the pages and into your heart. That’s the best part of getting to know God: the more time you spend with Him, the more He becomes a real part of your life.
