PSALM 139:1-18

“OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD”

INTRODUCTION

1. ROBERT WELLS WROTE A BOOK ENTITLED: IS A BLUE
WHALE THE BIGGEST THING THERE IS? IT IS A CHILDREN’S
BOOK TO HELP LITTLE ONES SEE JUST HOW BIG THE
UNIVERSE REALLY IS.

2. THE LARGEST ANIMAL ON EARTH IS THE BLUE WHALE.
JUST THE FLIPPERS ON ITS TAIL ARE BIGGER THAN MOST
ANIMALS ON EARTH. BUT A BLUE WHALE ISN’T ANYWHERE
NEAR AS BIG AS A MOUNTAIN. IF YOU COULD PUT ONE
HUNDRED BLUE WHALES INSIDE OF A HUGE JAR, YOU COULD
