Scripture: Hebrews 3:
4For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
Observation: God’s eye is always watching us.
Application: The other day I was listening to a quantum physicist speak on the radio about the double slit experiment. Electrons shot at a wall with two slits behave like a wave, until they are observed and they behave like particles. The theory he was working with is that we live in a multi-dimensional world which is full of many various potentials which all exist simultaneously together.
If this is the case, the physicist says, then in various dimensions there are different versions of us. In some dimensions I have made decisions and actions that led me to be rich and famous, in others, I might find myself homeless living on the streets, and in others there would be countless other potential versions of me living out countless other potential scenarios.
The difference in how the electrons of the double slit experiment behaved was the observer. Until observed the electrons exist in multiple locations as different potentials, but when observed the electrons collapse to one single observable measurable potential. Zapping the tiny world of electrons up in scale to include our various potential me theory the inevitable question arises of who decides which of the potential versions of myself is the Real one, the one that I am experiencing?
This is why I like quantum physicists. They are constantly dealing with things that they know exist, but still can not put their fingers on. Who is watching me, and collapsing all of the other potentials into the life that I’m living? God is watching me. God is the constant observer. He is the author and finisher of our faith, our lives, our hope of eternity and all that ever is or ever was. God is the observer.
Prayer: God who watches me,
Thank you for your love and grace, and thank you for the fact that you care enough to look upon me your creation. Thank you for loving me so much that you sent Jesus to be my savior and my Lord.
