God is in the Big Things, God is in the Small Things

God spoke the universe into existence. Everything is made for His glory, including us.

Something interesting a Christian friend shared with me this week. At the far edges of the universe, about as far as we can see, is the Whirlpool Galaxy (M51). It’s 23 million light years away. Here’s a photo from the Hubble telescope:
God is in the Big Things

One of the tiniest, wee things we can see is laminin, a structure of polypeptide chains that are an integral part of holding nearly all animal tissue together. Here’s what it looks like:
God is in the Small Things

A visual reminder that Jesus gave His life for us, and no matter where we go, there He is.

  1. Michael,

    Just wanted you to know that I used this post on my website. I am a fellow follower of Christ and appreciate what I\’ve been reading on yours. God bless, and thank you (retroactively) for letting me post it.



  2. I am thrilled to see this. Anyone who thinks that we evolved spontaneously and from a “soup” by random chance is insane and in denial of the truth of God’s Holy Word. Thanks for “standing in the gap.”


  3. I first eard of laminin on Giglio’s video and was stonishd at such thing, great work you are doing here. I will use the piocture and web addredss on my blog, Thanks Juan


  4. I seen Giglio’s video on Saturday at a friend’s house. I’m still in awe. We showed it last night at our Celebrate Recovery meeting. God has taken on a newer meaning to the words “Higher Power”. HOLY HOLY HOLY IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. WHO WAS AND IS AND IS TO COME. AMEN.


  5. wow wow wow …. thats what i have to say . if you havent seen how great is our god video you have to,loui explains so perciesly how great and huge our god is and how he can show us he is still in controll though our world may be fallng appart.


  6. omg that is sooooooooooooooooo cool i can’t belive it yet i do God can show his power in many many many ways even if it just one small little think that keeps us together and not falling apart you don’t know how blown away i am at this i just want to tell you this

    in Christ Jana


  7. This is awesome! I saw both things presented separately, but not together.
    Good job!
    I would like to add it to my blog (www.mylifeishidwithchrist.vox.com) ~ credit will be properly given.
    Thank you in advance and God bless you!


  8. It’s interesting that we think we can impress God with our works, yet the only two things Jesus marvelled at were faith and unbelief (Matthew 8:10
    Mark 6:5-7). God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34) and does not respond to men because of their personal greatness, but He does respond to faith. Faith that God has given to everyone – (Romans 12:3) – and that everyone can believe in Him through his creation, Romans 1:19-21: Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
    For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”
    So once people reject the God who created them, there is a darkness that descends upon them and they are lost in that darkness.


  9. I saw giglio’s video called how great is our god at church on wednesday night. It talked about laminin and showed this incredible image that hubble has sent back.

    God is truely amazing!


  10. That is an awesome picture when I saw that picture my body just felt the Holy Spirit all of a sudden and when I saw that planet for the first time, I cryed it is a awesome Blessing to see GOD move just so mysterious ways. He is our Everything and With God Everything Is Possible.



  11. God is INDESCRIBABLE as well as all HIS CREATIONS. I first saw the WHIRLPOOL GALAXY and LAMININ yesterday at our Sunday Fellowship. Instead of the usual preaching of our beloved Pastor, he had us watched this video of an American young preacher from ATLANTA, GEORGIA. I guess it was done after the INDESCRIBABLE TOUR they had. His topic was GOD’s bigness and indescribableness that was shown in HIS creations. I did not know who the speaker was, but I know that Louie is his first name. I just wanna thank you guys. God is indeed alive and moving. Your existence is enough proof. ALL GLORY BELONGS TO HIM!


  12. That is truly amazing. When I saw that today, it blew my mind. I looked in to the sky, trying to see how small I am. I don’t know why I did this, but it sure reminded me how big the God I’m worshipping is!


  13. Truly that our God iS a great God.. It is really amazing that you will suddenly discover that in every creation of God.. there’s a proof that it is realli Him who made it. so we can say that our God is a powerful and creative God! we are really blessed with your presentation about the universe and the Laminin. i couldn’t really imagine. Praise God!continue reaching souls for Christ!


  14. This is an amazing confirmation that God is at the centre of our lives to hold all things together by His mighty power, both in the universe and in our bodies. It is just a couple of days after Darwin Day, the 200th Anniversary of his birth. In UK many try to say that Darwin’s discoveries dismiss the need for God as our Creator, but not only is He our Creator but He also SUSTAINS the world and our lives by His amazing Word. Colossians 1v15-20 explain some of this.
    I will use these visuals in my own teaching tomorrow in our church 5mins North of London Gatwick Airport in Horley. Be blessed by our Great and Awesome God.


  15. Wow-it is not by incidence that God created us.From conception to natural death HE is with us–HE put HIS stamp on us from the beginning and continues to do so in our daily ordinary lives. We have HIS “STAMP” or SEAL of love ALWAYS.
    Laminin is a GOD INCIDENCE.


  16. We saw Louie’s video recently and it has changed our lives. I was so negative towards myself and how and who i am. But i am FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY MADE!!!! Hallelujah! My husband, son, and I are going to make copies of the video and walk through our town leaving them on every door step praying God touches all who receive it. Thank you Lord!


  17. I am a Christian. And love God with all my heart. But don’t get too wrapped up in things like this. The cross most western Christians think of is not necessarily what the real cross looked like. History shows us crosses were more the shape of a capital T.
    It’s very cool that laminin has a cross shape, and the M51 sort of has one (though I think it looks more like an x).
    Remember, the cross is where he died. Don’t hold to dear to the cross, but rather to the RISEN CHRIST!! Salvation comes through he who lives.


  18. that was amazing last night i dint know to think it was so AWSOME.i relized how much god loves us it brought me tears at the end.

    :] :] :] 😛
