Your Quantum Leap into the Nanotechnology of Faith.
By Rev. Nigel Mumford+
What is a Quantum leap? A jump over the Grand Canyon? A huge displacement, a leap of untold measure? A huge distance where the mind cannot even begin to fathom how to get from A to B? A distance of such magnitude that even the closest star cannot fit into our continuum of thought?
When it comes to faith many feel it takes a quantum leap of faith to know the love of The Lord. They are actually right. Many feel that there is a huge cost and distance in taking that leap when actually all it takes is a nanometer of faith. Indeed it does take a quantum leap. The thing is that a quantum leap is not a huge length of measure. The nanometer is often used to express dimensions on an atomic scale so small and minute it is not even visible to the naked eye! All it takes is a nanometer of measure to take that quantum leap.
“In physics, a quantum (plural: quanta) is the minimum amount of any physical entity involved in an interaction. Behind this, one finds the fundamental notion that a physical property may be “quantized,” referred to as “the hypothesis of quantization”. This means that the magnitude can take on only certain discrete values.” (Wiki). In fact a nanometer is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one billionth of a meter. Unseen by the naked eye!
So, all it takes in that leap of faith is a very slight shift. A slight redirection in course. A nanometer of change. The quantum leap is a minute shift of faith to know the presence of God.
To add to this train of thought that I have been pondering for a year or two, is that a photon is a single quantum of light, and is referred to as a “light quantum”. The energy of an electron bound to an atom is quantized, which results in the stability of atoms, and hence of matter in general. Jesus said that He is the light of the world. Therefore every atom has light attached to it creating stability. All it takes is one photon of the light of truth to penetrate the soul and we know the love and presence of God.
“As incorporated into the theory of quantum mechanics, this is regarded by physicists as part of the fundamental framework for understanding and describing nature at the smallest length-scales.” (Wiki)
Perhaps this is the fundamental framework for understanding and describing our relationship with God at the smallest length-scales.
Perhaps we could allow our mind to take a nanometer shift or indeed a quantum leap of faith to invite The Lord into our very being. The Lord being the designer of all this unit of measure and this very universe.
So lets put this nano technology into biblical proportion as we look at Hebrews 11:1 (AMP)
“Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, [a]the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].”
Can we be quantum mechanics in this train of thought?
Have you made that quantum leap, a photon, and nanometer move to invite The Lord into your very being?
“A small step for man, a giant leap for mankind.”

Be well, do good works, and for the sake of God,
Love one another.
