I Can’t Sit Still… And Neither Can You…

I’ve been doing a new presentation in my speaking ministry on God’s creation and the more I dig into the science behind it, the more amazed I become.

Consider the amazing precision of God’s creation and how it all works. Here we are on planet earth. We are 93,000,000 miles away from the sun. If we were closer the planet would burn up if it was further away, we would freeze. But we’re not just out here floating in space. There is a lot going on.

For example, did anyone ever tell you to sit still. Well if anyone does, you should probably answer (respectfully of course), “I can’t.” Because you really can’t and I can prove it. You’re not sitting still and you never have. Actually you are riding the universe’s most amazing thrill ride and you don’t even know it. You are never actually stationary. because the earth you are sitting on right now is spinning at approximately a thousand miles an hour. But it gets better, the earth revolves around the sun. Each year the earth makes a 584 million mile journey around the sun. In order to complete this journey on time, the earth has to be moving at a rate of somewhere between 64,000 and 67,000 miles per hour. Would we slow down from that velocity we would probably be pulled into the sun, faster and the sun might lose it’s grip on us and send us hurtling into space.

It works similarly with the rotation of the earth. You see you’re not sitting on a nice flat surface. You’re sitting on the side of a ball. The reason you don’t fly off is because the earth is spinning at 1000 miles per hour. God has made this universe work perfectly. He is the Lord of all creation. He holds you in the palm of his hand…

…and He loves you!
