BIBLE VERSE FOR FRIDAY
Friday, November 02, 2018
Thus says the Lord "If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth search out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done." says the LORD.
Astronomers estimate the universe to be at least 93 billion light years in diameter and a light year is six trillion miles. But the universe is expanding. As for the depths of the earth, the deepest part of the ocean is 6.85 miles and it is nearly 3,959 miles to the center of the earth. So we have barely scratched the surface.
The prophets knew nothing of these numbers. They used the immensity of the universe and the size of the earth as measures of size of impossibility. When it came to the probability of God going back on His promises to Abraham, Jeremiah said that you must measure the universe and depths of the earth before God would go back on is Word. And we know the heavens and the earth cannot be measured. It turns out that Jeremiah's pre-scientific analogy was very accurate. Just as there is no end to the universe, so there is no end to God's loyalty to Israel.
As a follower of Jesus, you are a spiritual child of Abraham. God's promises of spiritual blessings to Abraham are promises to us as well. God promises to keep His people, and He will keep His promises.
