As we all know, there are 66 books in the Bible – no more, no less. And yet, from the way that many people interpret the first chapter of Genesis, it appears that they have added a sixty-seventh book...

The Sun, Moon and Stars

Psalm 8:3-4
“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?”

What is the most awesome show of God’s power? It may not be what you think.

Each speck is a galaxy.In Psalm 8:3 4, the psalmist is led to exclaim, “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and stars which you have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him…?” If the night sky is a glory we can only stare at in awe, our telescopes and space probes have shown us that we can see very little of its true glory.

Consider our sun. Less than 0.10 percent of all the sun’s energy falls on the Earth. Yet if just that small fraction of power could be harnessed, we would never have any energy shortage. But we have learned that our sun is only an average sized star in our galaxy of over 1 billion stars! We have no way to even measure that kind of energy! Even more awesome is that our galaxy is only one of more than a million galaxies! What is a billion times immeasurable energy? And God made and energized it all in just one day!

As hard as all of this is to understand, what is even harder for us to comprehend about God’s working is that all of this was created through the power of God’s Word – that same Word that became flesh and dwelt among us! Truly, His love for us is beyond our comprehension!

Father, though I cannot comprehend it, I thank You for Your Love for me which moved You to send Your only Son for my redemption. Help me to better understand such love and make me better able to show it to others. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
