God used a tiny germ to stop the whole world

It wasn't a mighty sound of thunder. Nor was it powerful hurricane winds. And it wasn't a tremendous earthquake either. No, it was none of these calamities that stopped the world. Instead, God stopped the forward motion of practically the whole world-by sending something invisible to the physical eye. A tiny germ. A microscopic organism.

If the God of the Bible can perform such mighty wonders with something so small as a virus-what does that tell us concerning the rest of His power and might?

Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

God is the Almighty. Almighty means exactly what it says. He possesses all might. The world, which we normally tend to think of as great and mighty in itself. Is nothing in comparison to the Almighty God of the Bible.

Isaiah 40:12 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.

The Bible has always told us that the world was nothing really. Nothing to be accounted of. According to God, the nations are as a drop that falls into a bucket. And the isles (the continents) but a very "little thing" when viewed side by side next to His eternal power and might.
