At times, people's perceptions of God can be rather inconsistent. When things go well or they achieve success, they often attribute it to divine intervention, saying, "God is with me." Conversely, when faced with challenges or setbacks, they might lament, "God has abandoned me," or "God is punishing me." Such sentiments are often driven by negative thoughts and fears, and this is a common refrain among many.

For those grappling with such uncertainties, I'd like to share a brief conversation between a father and his son that might offer some clarity on understanding God.

A boy asked the father: What is the size of God?

Then the father looked up to the sky and seeing an airplane asked the son: What is the size of that airplane?

The boy answered: It's very small. I can barely see it.

So the father took him to the airport and as they approached an airplane he asked:

And now, what is the size of this one?

The boy answered: Wow daddy, this is huge!

Then the father told him: Like this is God, His size depends on what distance you are from Him. The Closer You are to Him, The Greater He Will Be In Your Life!

Forever it is the size of God...
