Gems From Pastor Jim

CrossPs. 147:4-5 He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great is our LORD! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension!

When was the last time you really pondered over the greatness of God? Have you considered the magnitude of the heavens? On a clear night you can see more stars than you can count. We are told that the nearest one to us is over two light years away and a light year is how far light travels in a year at 186,000 miles per second. Some of the stars we see no longer exist. They are so far away from us that we are still seeing their light as it travels across space. We are told that there are billions of stars, and most are much larger than our own. The Psalmist tells us that every one of those stars has a name and the Lord knows it. He spoke them into existence and named them! I sometimes have trouble remembering one name, let alone billions of them. The Lord not only knows the name of every star, he knows the name of every soul. How great is our God!

Now, if God has the power to create such a thing as the heavens, don’t you think he has enough power to take care of you? There is absolutely nothing that is beyond the Lord’s ability to handle. There is nothing that can stand up to the power of God. His power and authority are absolute. We cannot grasp how it can be, but we know it is so.

Who can fathom the mind of God? Who can understand how God can be and how he can do what he has done? Who can grasp God’s potential? God’s greatness is beyond understanding. We certainly cannot figure Him out. All we can do is accept Him for who he is and submit to his power and authority over us. Only a fool would dare to ignore the Lord our God!

Before and After the Honeymoon

About the Author:

Jim HughesSpending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.

C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.

I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.
