Big and Little

On the fourth day of creation God said, "Let there be lights in the sky."
And over one-hundred billion stars appeared; each in its own special place.
Most of those stars were over one-million miles in diameter and the distance
from one star to the next star was many trillions of miles across space.
On the sixth day of creation God said, "Let us make man in our image."
But God did not "speak" man into existence the way He did the entire earth.
Instead God formed a man from the dust of the ground and God personally
breathed into that man the breath of life and the man breathed his first breath.
Inside that one man was the rib from which God formed Eve.
And within his body Adam also carried the entire human race.
Before God created the world God knew each one of us by name and
in His Book God wrote all of our names and the exact number of our days.
What is big? In the beginning God created billions of stars and each star
was thousands of times bigger than the size of our entire planet earth.
What is little? In the beginning God made one man and within Adamís seed
God also made billions of people who would appear on the day of their birth.
Is anything too hard for God? The answer is "____." . . . . . . . . . . . . . (nay)
Can God answer your prayers today? The answer is "____." . . . . . . . (yea)
Reference Scripture Verses
Genesis 1:1 - In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:11-13 - Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning -- the third day.
Genesis 1:14-19 - And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. God made two great lights -- the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning -- the fourth day.
Genesis 1:26-31 - Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground." Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground--everything that has the breath of life in it -- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning -- the sixth day.
Genesis 2:7 - the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
Psalm 139:13-18 - For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.
Revelation 17:8 - The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come.
Revelation 20:11-15 - Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
Genesis 18:14 - Is anything too hard for the LORD?
Jeremiah 32:27 - "I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?"
