Excerpt from "Wild Goose Chase"

Hey, here is a little excerpt from a book I am reading called, “Wild Goose Chase” by Mark Batterson.

Right now you have no sensation of motion. I’m guessing you’re sitting still as you read Wild Goose Chase. But the reality is that you are sitting on a planet that is spinning around its axis at approximately one thousand miles per hour. Planet earth will make one full rotation in the next twenty-four hours. Not only that, but you are also hurtling though space at approximately sixty-seven thousand miles per hour. And you didn’t have any big plans for today! Before the day is done, you will have traveled 1.3 million miles in your annual trek around the sun.

Now let me ask you a question. When was the last time you thanked God for keeping us in orbit? I’m guessing never. Lord, thanks for keeping us in orbit. And I was a little nervous about making the full rotation around our axis today, but You did it again. Most of us don’t pray that way. But isn’t it a little ironic that we have a hard time believing God for the little stuff while we take the big stuff for granted. Come on, if God can keep the planets in orbit, don’t you think He can reorder your life when you feel like it’s spinning out of control?
